TREMONTON, Utah (KBOI-TV) - Police say a 26-year-old man wanted on drugs and weapons charges managed to evade police Monday morning after a high-speed chase from northern Utah to southern Idaho.

Tremonton Police Chief Dave Nance says officers pulled the man over around 4 a.m. for a traffic violation on Main Street in Tremonton, about 20 miles south of the Idaho border.

Nance says officers spoke to the man 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's a $30,000 warrant out for the man, whose name was not released.

He had not been arrested as of Monday morning.
