Juveniles lead police on 140 MPH chase in stolen car through Heber City

HEBER CITY, Utah – Two juveniles were taken into custody after leading police on a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle that reached speeds of up to 140 mph according to the Heber City Police Department.

The incident began around 8:58 a.m. on Sept. 7 when officers attempted to stop a white Dodge Challenger on North Main Street due to expired registration. Checks revealed that the vehicle was reported stolen.

Instead of pulling over, the vehicle sped off westbound on Highway 40 toward Jordanelle State Park. After briefly eluding officers near Highway 40’s exit 8, the vehicle re-entered the highway heading eastbound toward Heber City.

In coordination with multiple agencies, police successfully deployed spike strips, puncturing the vehicle’s driver-side tires. The car eventually stopped at Highway 40’s Mile Marker 14.

Both juvenile occupants were detained and have been booked into a Juvenile Detention facility on multiple charges. Investigators later confirmed the vehicle was stolen earlier that morning from Spanish Fork City and had previously fled from Utah County Sheriff Deputies.

No injuries were reported during the chase. Authorities are urging local residents to ensure their vehicles are locked and secure.
