Marshals arrest fugitive hiding in Millcreek dog house

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah) - A brief pursuit led US Marshals to a home on 900 East in Salt Lake where a man wanted on drug charges was found hiding in a dog house. 
It happened early Friday morning in the Millcreek area. Deputy Supervisor Derryl Spencer says US Marshals have been actively looking for Mike Noble, who has the street name "Lil Casper," according to arrest records. Spencer says Noble, who was wanted on drug charges and has fled from law enforcement before, was spotted driving in the neighborhood near 3435 S 900 E after a four-hour stakeout.

Spencer says Noble jumped out of the car and ran into the home where Unified Police say he is known to frequent.
US Marshals set up a containment area around the home and got the 13 occupants out. Meanwhile, two Marshals found Noble hiding in the doghouse.
"We always find people hiding in weird places who do whatever they can to hide," said Spencer. "It's kind of a normal day for the Marshals but it's still funny."
Noble and two others at the home, David Beams and Natalie Sainz, were taken into custody and booked into the Salt Lake County jail. Beams and Sainz were booked after Marshals found them to have outstanding warrants.


Their connection to Noble is unclear.
Spencer says Noble has a history of burglary and weapons charges.
"He's just someone dangerous we wanted to get off the street," said Spencer, who added Noble has evaded authorities for thirteen months.
