966 W. 200 S.
Officers were called to a burglary in progress at 966 W. 200 S. Upon arrival officers confronted a male and female in a white U-Haul F-150 in a back alley. The driver, Joshua Kunz (3/28/84), decided to flee by trying to back down the alley at a high rate of speed, almost hitting a responding officer who was able to jump out of the way. The vehicle struck a wood power pole at the entrance to the alley, sheering it off at the ground. This rendered the vehicle inoperable. Kunz fled but was captured near 1015 W. Euclid Ave. The passenger, Tiffany Larsen (3/16/82), fled across the street but then quickly surrendered. Officers booked Larsen for warrants and drug paraphernalia, while they booked Kunz for fleeing in a vehicle, hit & run, fleeing on foot, and possession of burglary tools.
