WEST VALLEY, UT — There was a pursuit of three teens in a stolen car in West Valley this afternoon, West Valley Police said.

Shortly after 4:00 p.m. this afternoon, in the neighborhood around 5400 South and 4885 West, officers stopped the teens in possession of a stolen car, West Valley Police Lt. Robert Brinton confirmed.

Police attempted a traffic stop on it and threw spikes in front of the car. Despite the vehicle slowing down, the driver and one of the passengers fled the scene on foot. According to Lt. Brinton, “they both have a lengthy history.”

The other passenger in the back of the car stayed at the scene.

Police were able to find one of the two teens who ran away. Both of them had firearms.  The driver of the stolen car is still on the run, but detectives have an idea of where he is. He dropped his firearm and does not seem to be a threat.

This is a developing story and may be updated.
