OREM, Utah, May 30, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A man wanted on several outstanding warrants out of Heber City was arrested Saturday afternoon in Orem at his daughter’s wedding reception.

Lt. Craig Martinez said they received an anonymous tip that a man with multiple warrants out of Heber City was at a home in Orem.

“Our officers arrived and the homeowner let us in, saying he did not know the man well, but we could come in,” Martinez said.

“Once Sanchez saw our officers, he attempted to run and hide in one of the bathrooms. Our officers did not know it was a wedding reception; they thought it was a birthday party.”

Arquin Samuel Sanchez of Salt Lake City is being held at the Utah County Jail on more than $11,000 in cash-only warrants, all stemming from cases dating back to 2010 and 2011. The charges including failure to yield at the command of an officer, possession of a controlled substance and intoxication.
