CACHE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Cache County deputies arrested a man after they said he stole a truck and led law enforcement on a high-speed chase early Saturday morning.

Beau Nopens, 35, was booked into the Cache County Jail on several charges related to the incident.

Cache County Sheriff’s Office said a pickup truck was stolen from Wellsville around 5:30 a.m. Deputies spotted the vehicle at the intersection of Highway 23 and SR-30.

“A lengthy pursuit began covering the entire north end of the county ending with the suspect crashing the vehicle in the Cove area,” said Sheriff Chad Jensen in a news release Saturday afternoon.

The male suspect, later identified as Nopens, fled on foot and attempted to break into a home. K9 units responded to the scene and spotted the suspect, but during the pursuit, one of the K9s bit a deputy. 

Nopens was able to evade deputies, but later in the day employees at Pepperidge Farms in Richmond reported a suspicious person at the business. When investigators arrived, they found and arrested Nopens.

Nopens now faces charges of theft, theft of a motor vehicle, felony evasion trespassing, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident.

The deputy injured received care at the hospital and has since been released.
