Sgt. Cal Kunz, Salt Lake City Police: "Basically the officers caught up to him and he surrendered at that point. (Reporter: he didn't put up a fight?) No, not at all. He was taken into custody without incident. He basically decided he couldn't get away, he was outnumbered so he stopped."

Officers say they found additional forgery evidence on scene inside a brown paper bag.

Police also say Christansen had a concealed weapon. He's been booked into Salt Lake County Jail.
