Joseph Lee Chatwin, 40, was taken into custody early Thursday morning at 4900 South State Street in Murray after he again tried to flee from police.
Farmington Police were contacted early Thursday morning about the arrest and are pleased Chatwin is back in custody.
“I talked to the detective this morning and this clears 14 vehicle burglaries from Farmington alone,” Farmington Police Lt. Parish Snyder said.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Office Joint Criminal Apprehension Team have been on the lookout for Chatwin since his alleged July 17 escape from police custody in Farmington.
On Wednesday night he went to a home in Sandy, then left. JCAT officers tried to stop him using spikes, said Jim Phelps, of JCAT. One of the tires was hit and blew out, but Chatwin continued to flee.
He then drove to Murray where police again used spikes, blowing out two additional tires, but Chatwin continued driving on the tire rims.
Phelps said that after the car was disabled, Chatwin bailed out and tried to get into a vehicle driven by a woman parked at a red light.
Officers were able to jump on Chatwin as he allegedly tried to steal the car.
Phelps said as Chatwin allegedly reached for a gun, an officer tasered him and used a police dog.
Chatwin was taken to the hospital with dog bites and Taser wounds and was then to be booked into the Salt Lake County Jail.
Snyder said Chatwin’s arrest solves a lot of vehicle crimes across the Wasatch Front. Vehicle burglaries are among the hardest to solve, he said.
