Shades of the Old West.
A burglary suspect led a Millard County deputy on a two-hour chase Friday, first on foot and then bareback on a horse before finally being caught hiding submerged in a watering trough.Only the suspect's nose was protruding from the icy water when Deputy Kim Taylor located him about 4:30 a.m. Friday, said sheriff's dispatcher Linda Rowley.
Following the arrest of the 18-year-old suspect, sheriff's deputies tracked down three other members of a suspected burglary ring believed responsible for more than 20 burglaries in the Delta area during the past eight to 10 months, Rowley said.
The chase began after deputies surprised three suspects during a burglary in Delta about 2:30 a.m.
Two of the suspects eventually eluded officers, but Taylor stuck to the third suspect. He chased him on foot to a field, where the suspect jumped on a horse and rode away.
Taylor also mounted a horse, and the pursuit continued. It ended at a feed lot west of Delta, where the suspect was found in the water trough.
