FARMINGTON, Utah –Police continue to search for a male suspect two days after he fled from custody.
Police said Joseph Lee Chatwin, 40, escaped arrest by kicking out the window of a police patrol car.
The search started on Tuesday morning when a West Jordan detective investigating a stolen motorhome found the vehicle in the campground of the Lagoon campground.
“Big, 31-foot Rounder, stolen out of West Jordan with a counterfeit $30,000 check,” said Farmington Police Lt. Parish Snyder describing the stolen motorhome.
The detective located the two suspects, who initially tried to flee the scene. However, both suspects were caught and arrested.
“We believe this couple has been committing numerous thefts and burglaries throughout northern Utah,” said Lt. Parish Snyder, Farmington Police Department. “With the stolen RV back at Lagoon, they had a stolen motorcycle, stolen utility trailer and who knows what else.”
