Third Burglary Suspect Arrested in Colorado

The third and final of three suspects in a Vernal burglary that took place on August 21st has been arrested. According to the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office, 21-year-old Joseph Moralez was arrested in Colorado on Friday. 28-year-old Ebony Nicole Salcido and 26-year-old Sean Ryan Garcia were brought into custody last month in Colorado after a high speed chase that ended in their car crashing and both being arrested. The Uintah County Sheriff’s Office posted pictures taken of the crooks robbing a Vernal home on August 21st on social media as well as a picture of the car the crooks had pulled up to the driveway of the home. The vehicle was spotted that night and a high speed chase ensued. Joseph Moralez remained at large and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Law enforcement finally caught up to him and less than three weeks after his face was caught on camera while robbing a Vernal home, Moralez is in custody and scheduled to be extradited back to Utah to face charges.
