The Bonneville County Sheriff Department issued an emergency call Sunday notifying people near Homestead Lane and Lariat Lane to stay inside their homes.

Around 9:55 a.m. deputies were looking for a fugitive suspected of stealing a car and burglary. About 30 minutes later authorities detained the man.

A witness said deputies are trying to tow the car out of the corner of Higbee Avenue and Hartert Drive after it was driven through a fence and into a backyard.

We have a crew on the way to the scene and will bring you more information when available.
