(KSL News) -- An attempt to sell stolen tires at a West Valley tire shop, led to a high speed chase, today.

It all ended near 2nd East and 17th South, where officers wrestled Justin Guymon to the ground

He was driving a black pickup, hit a yellow car, then fled on foot into a nearby garage. A neighbor showed police where the suspect was hiding.

Eldon Webb, Neighbor:"I didn't want to let a bad guy get away and my adrenaline was really pumping at that time. If I had seen a weapon of some sort I would've thought twice about what I was doing but the guy was just on the run."

Police say the suspect tried selling some tires and rims. But store employees recognized them as stolen, and called police.

A woman in the truck was questioned, but released.

No one was injured. And police are looking for a weapon they believe was thrown out of the pickup during the chase.
