IDAHO FALLS — A fugitive sought for nearly two weeks by Bonneville County law enforcement was found Tuesday afternoon hiding on a remote island in the Snake River near Firth.

Earlier Tuesday, a Bonneville County sheriff's deputy tried to pull over Francisco P. Tarin, 41, for failing to yield on Broadway in Idaho Falls. But Tarin fled the scene at about 4:50 a.m., turning north onto Interstate 15, Bonneville County Sheriff's Sgt. Jeff Edwards said.

The seven-minute pursuit reached speeds of more than 100 mph at times, Edwards said. The chase started on I-15. Tarin left the interstate for a time and traveled over city streets before getting back on the interstate.
