Heber City Police have arrested four people in connection to a series of car thefts.
Last week a series of burglaries had Heber Police reminding residents to not leave their keys in their cars. A rash of car thefts have hit not only Heber and Midway but also up into Park City and Summit County. Law Enforcment officials had been able to recover a few of the stolen cars but they had not made any arrests.
At 2:30 am on Tuesday a Heber Police officer attempted to pull over a car for a failure to stop at a stop sign. When the officer turned on their lights the car sped off resulting in a chase. The vehicle crashed, and two of the four occupants were arrested, while the other two fled the scene. Later in the day the two who fled were found and arrested.
The four people involved have been linked to at least two car thefts but the four are suspected in other car thefts around the state.
