ST. GEORGE — Police say the discovery of a trailer packed with packed with stolen snowmobiles and a motorcycle sparked an extensive search for three suspects that lasted well into the early morning hours Saturday. The St. George News reports.

At 4:30 p.m. Friday a man called 911 to report that a snowmobile and utility trailer his family had reported stolen six weeks prior was observed in the Dixie Downs area of St. George being pulled behind a Dodge pickup truck.

The family member verified that the trailer’s license plate number matched the one reported stolen and began following the Dodge while updating dispatchers with their current location. The truck continued north from Snow Canyon Parkway to state Route 18 toward Veyo and after several miles pulled off along a side road heading toward Pine Valley.
