HEBER CITY, Utah (ABC4) – A police chase through Heber City led officers to arrest a felony fugitive, Saturday evening.

According to the Heber City Police Department, the alleged suspect Jared Luther Pacheco was wanted on a felony warrant for offenses including fleeing and possession of a weapon by a restricted person.

As the suspect fled the scene, he intentionally collided with two occupied and marked patrol vehicles, and then crashed into a residential fence near Airport Road and Baxter Drive.

  • Narcotic offenses
  • Traffic offenses

Officers say, Pacheco is likely to also face additional charges from his original warrant.

“We are so grateful no one was injured and appreciate all assisting agencies that participated in the apprehension of Mr. Pacheco,” informs the Heber City Police Department.
