OGDEN — Police arrested a man after he robbed an Ogden bank then fled the scene, leading officers on a chase across the city Thursday, according to court documents.

Sean Thomas Moore, 42, entered a Key Bank at 3565 Harrison Blvd. about 1:30 p.m. and demanded money from the teller but did not display a weapon, police said. Moore was given some money and fled the area in a silver passenger vehicle, according to court documents.

Ogden community service officers saw Moore's car and told police the direction it was traveling. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but Moore failed to stop, according to court documents. Police pursued him for about 12 minutes before using "pursuit intervention techniques" to end the chase near 600 N. Porter Ave., court documents state.

After stopping Moore, police discovered the vehicle he was driving was reported stolen from West Valley City, according to court documents.

Police took Moore and a female passenger into custody and transported both to the Ogden Police Department where Moore was questioned and confessed to entering and robbing the bank, possessing a stolen vehicle, and evading police officers, court documents state.

Police questioned the woman about her knowledge and involvement in the incident, but she was released from police custody with no pending charges, according to Ogden Police Lt. Tim Scott.

Moore was booked into the Weber County Jail on suspicion of robbery, receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle and failure to stop or respond at the command of police, according to court documents.
