An Ogden man who allegedly fled from Box Elder County in a stolen vehicle was apprehended in Logan early Sunday evening, booked into the Cache County Jail and has been charged in 1st District Court with theft by receiving stolen property, mail theft, reckless driving and more.
According to a probable cause statement filed along with his arrest, Jorge Ceja-Gonzalez fled from police in Perry in a Toyota Corolla after the officer attempted to stop him for a traffic violation.
Ceja-Gonzalez entered Sardine Canyon and continued into Cache Valley with police and the Utah Highway Patrol in pursuit until they called off the chase in Wellsville.
However, according to the probable cause statement, Logan police were waiting and watching for him when he allegedly continued into Logan city limits near Nibley at about 100 mph.
Logan police did not engage in a chase, but they reportedly followed from a safe distance until he was seen entering a neighborhood north of Woodruff Elementary School, just east of 1000 West.
After police established a perimeter around the area, Ceja-Gonzalez was found hiding under a trailer and taken into custody.
A search of the vehicle reportedly led to the discovery of mail and checks with names that did not belong to Ceja-Gonzalez or the registered owner of the car.
Ceja-Gonzalez is being held without bail in the Cache County Jail on the new charges, and he also has a no-bail warrant for his arrest out of Weber County.
