OGDEN, Utah — Ogden police said three members of the “Ogden Trece” are in custody after a pursuit Sunday evening.

According to a news release, officers working a gang enforcement detail noticed a green Jeep Grand Cherokee driving recklessly near G Avenue and West 25th Street shortly before 6 p.m. Police tried to stop the vehicle, which they said fled the area.

Officers saw the Grand Cherokee driving against traffic on the northbound off-ramp of I-15 at 24th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Police notified the Utah Highway Patrol of the situation and slowly drove up the emergency lane of the off-ramp to make sure the Grand Cherokee hadn’t injured anyone or caused major damage.

Police observed multiple cars were pulling over on the east side of the freeway and the Jeep had crashed near the northbound on-ramp to I-15 at 31st Street.

Officers went to the crash site and saw three people trying to flee on foot. Two of them were caught near the crash site and the third was caught after other officers set up containment near Fort Buena Ventura Park.

The suspects were identified as 21-year-old Amanda Rose, 24-year-old Patrick Guillen and 30-year-old Aaron Liptrap. Police said Liptrap had been driving the Grand Cherokee and he was found in possession of drug paraphernalia.

All three suspects were booked into the Weber County Jail on multiple charges.

Police said no citizens were injured and no other property was damaged, but one officer was treated for minor puncture wounds and lacerations to his hands that he suffered while climbing a fence during the foot pursuit.
