The Moab City Police Department, acting on information provided by the United States Marshal Service, apprehended a rape suspect at a motel in downtown Moab
Bradley Allen West, a suspect in rape case out of Washington County, was arrested on an outstanding warrant on Tuesday, Sept. 26.
According to Moab Police Chief Jim Winder, law enforcement officers received information from the Marshals indicating West may be either living in, or passing through Moab.
After receiving the information, Moab City Police Officer Braydon Palmer initiated efforts to locate West. Officer Palmer subsequently located a vehicle matching the description of one used by the subject. Additional Moab units responded and initiated surveillance of the vehicle.
“West subsequently exited the motel and attempted to enter the vehicle being monitored by police,” Winder said. “Officers contacted Mr. West, confirmed his identity and placed him in custody without incident.”
West was transported to the Grand County Jail where he was booked on felony rape and other charges. He is being held in lieu of a $100,000 cash-only bail.
