An ex-con with multiple arrest warrants and a habit of eluding law enforcement was finally brought to justice late Thursday night by officers of the multi-law enforcement agency Joint Criminal Apprehension Team.
JCAT Commander Jim Phelps said 25-year-old fugitive Marcus Alexander Garcia initially was sighted in a vehicle near 7000 South and Redwood Road in West Jordan about 9 p.m. Thursday.
"Our officers tried to stop him, but he drove away, hitting one of our vehicles in the process. There was a short chase, but we terminated it because it became to risky [to public safety]," Phelps said Friday. "One of our undercover vehicles then spotted him and followed, but then lost sight of him."
