Two in custody after fleeing police in Cedar City

Two men have been arrested and are in custody after fleeing from officers when they were stopped for speeding. When pulled over the deputy suspected there to be drugs in the vehicle and called for a K-9 unit to come to the scene and investigate. After being asked by the deputy to exit the vehicle, the men fled on foot.

Both are now in custody and are wanted in connection to drug trafficking violations, according to a Facebook post by the Iron County Sheriff's Office. The men are believed to be Roberto Gallardo Lerenzo, 29, and Manuel Romero Gallardo, 39.
