On Wednesday Joshua GARVIN was located and arrested in Provo, Utah. According to Provo Utah Police, they received a tip that GARVIN was at a shelter in their city. When officers arrived at the shelter, GARVIN fled on foot, and after a brief chase was arrested without incident. GARVIN will be held in Utah pending extradition back to Oregon, and no doubt to a longer period of higher security incarceration than before he decided to run.
