TREMONTON, Utah -- Police say a 26-year-old man wanted on drugs and weapons charges who managed to evade police Monday morning after a high-speed chase from northern Utah to southern Idaho is now in custody.

Tremonton Police Chief Dave Nance says Brodey J. Brown was arrested Tuesday morning after a tip led investigators to a residence in South Ogden, Utah.

Officers pulled Brown over around 4 a.m. Monday for a traffic violation on Main Street in Tremonton, about 20 miles south of the Idaho border.

Nance says officers spoke to Brown but he drove off, leading them on a chase north to Garland and Interstate 15 toward Idaho.

The Standard-Examiner reports officers abandoned the pursuit as they approached Idaho as that state did not have officers near the border to continue.

Nance says there was a $30,000 warrant out for Brown.
