WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A wanted fugitive was arrested after a chase through two cities and containment in West Valley City Friday night. 

Lt. Brian Lohrke, Unified Police Department, said around 11:15 p.m. the Taylorsville Street Crimes detectives received information from Adult Probation and Parole that fugitive Khamsaen Phetinta, 41, was in possession of a stolen Honda and possibly at an apartment in Taylorsville.
