MONA, Juab County — After a 14-hour manhunt, police arrested a man suspected of being involved in a burglary of a Nephi police officer's home.
The arrest occurred about 10:15 a.m. Wednesday in Mona.
The officer arrived home Tuesday evening and found a man burglarizing his home. The burglar fled from the scene in a truck into the mountains of Mona. A chase ensued, in which items reportedly fell out of the back of the man's truck, including a stolen motorcycle from Nephi.
During the chase, the man's truck became high centered and the man fled on foot. The Juab County sheriff said the man was believed to be armed and dangerous after authorities found a box of rifle ammunition in his truck.
The Utah County SWAT team assisted in the search, along with a Utah Highway Patrol helicopter.
More details will be posted as they become available.
