A man who allegedly stole an RV from a Sunset dealership early Saturday led police on a chase along Interstate 15 before being stopped by spikes laid on the highway in Salt Lake County.
After the RV was disabled, the suspect refused to come out of the vehicle. Members of a Utah Highway Patrol Special Emergency Response Team (SERT) then tossed a tear-gas canister into the vehicle, Sunset police Officer Chad Campbell said. The suspect was then arrested.
The pursuit began about 4 a.m. after a Sunset officer saw an RV without license plates being driven out of the Sierra RV dealership, Campbell said. The officer tried to initiate a traffic stop but the driver took off.
