WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – A 29-year-old female and her passenger are behind bars after their involvement in a high-speed pursuit around 10:30 p.m. Monday night.

The pursuit started on 3600 west and 2900 south and ended on 5600 west just north of California Avenue.

Police were able to pop two of the tires using spikes which slowed the car down before the driver came to a complete stop voluntarily.

West Valley City Police Lieutenant, Dalan Taylor said, “Our officers have inventoried the vehicle and we have located a firearm.

“Obviously she can`t be in possession of a firearm and there`s some indicators that there may be some fraud going on, also possibility of narcotics or at least paraphernalia.”

The police also say that the driver is a parole fugitive and based on evidence in the car they believe the suspects may have been committing identity theft.
