Two joyriders were arrested Tuesday morning after they allegedly drove through Cottonwood Heights leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
A resident near 2600 East and 6500 South called police about 3 a.m. to report that people were driving through the neighborhood smashing mailboxes and parked cars with a baseball bat, said Cottonwood Heights Police Sgt. Corbett Ford.
An officer drove to the area and began to follow a suspicious truck when he saw one of the occupants smash a mailbox. When the officer turned on his lights to make a traffic stop, the truck sped off, Ford said.
