WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — A suspect in a high-speed chase through West Valley City has been identified.

Jason Justin Kingston, 18, and two juveniles were taken into custody Sunday night after the pursuit.

Kingston admitted to seeing the lights and hearing the sirens, according to a Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office probable cause statement. Kingston reportedly told police he was on the run and had warrants out for his arrest.

The chase ended at approximately 10:30 p.m. near 3100 South and 4000 West, said West Valley City Police Officers.

Police said they were called to a burglary in a subdivision where they chased down four suspects in a gray Buick. They said they believe at some point one of the people in the car jumped out as the chase continued.

Officers said Kingston, the driver, avoided the spikes police put on the road, but the car was eventually stopped by a pit maneuver.

Kingston was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on charges fleeing, a Third-Degree Felony.

No one was injured in the chase.
