SLC suspect hijacks trailer loaded with $28,000 worth of goods

West Valley City (ABC4) – Utah State’s Delwin Graves has had several run-ins with police in recent years.

On March 5, an officer from West Valley City was dispatched regarding the “suspicious circumstances” of a stolen vehicle. Law enforcement located a ski mask on Delwin Graves’ car registration number.

The officer responded to a dispatch call in Kearns where the car was hijacked with a trailer loaded with expensive goods in the amount of $28,000.

The stolen vehicle allegedly attempted to ram into police during the suspects’ fleet and has since been recovered a few weeks ago.

It was discovered that Graves had multiple felony warrants and fled on foot through the back door of the residence, refusing to comply with orders from law enforcement.

The suspect then allegedly brandished a large knife towards the officer and was confronted at gunpoint, asking officers to shoot him.

Following these events, Graves again fled on foot, jumping numerous fences. He then attempted to enter a residence holding the knife and was shocked by law enforcement.

During a police search, heroin and paraphernalia were found on Graves’ person.

The suspect has an extensive criminal history including theft, drug possession and many other types of crimes.

Currently, Graves has been incarcerated in Salt Lake County Jail on two counts of receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle, one count of theft while receiving stolen property, three counts of assaulting police officers with one count of possession of a controlled substance, one count of obstruction of justice, one count of failing to stop when ordered by law enforcement, two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon dangerous, one count of interfering with an officer’s arrest, one count of use/possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of intoxication and one count of failure to remain at the scene of the incident .
