SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A man has been arrested on suspicion of leading authorities on a high-speed chase in a stolen motor home through Davis and Salt Lake City counties and then barricading himself in it on Interstate 15.

The chase began early Saturday morning after police observed an RV valued at some $200,000 leaving a dealership in Sunset.

Police say they tried to stop the vehicle, but suspect Blake Morrow led them on a chase through Davis County before eventually driving onto I-15 and entering Salt Lake County.

After a set of spikes placed by authorities stopped the motor home, Morrow is accused of barricading himself in it for some two hours until the release of tear gas.

No injuries were reported.

Morrow faces evading and felony theft charges.
