A complaint has been filed in federal court against a man accused of trying to ram through a blocked entry point at Hill Air Force Base early Wednesday and then running off on foot, prompting an alert and a base-wide search.
Teofilo Frankie Quintana, 40, faces two charges in U.S. District Court: destruction
of property in the special and maritime jurisdiction of the United States, and
unlawful entry upon a military installation.
The first count is a felony that carries a potential sentence of up to five
years in prison; the other is a misdemeanor that could be punishable by a six-month
incarceration, if Quintana is found guilty.
Quintana drove up to the base's south gate around 4 a.m. in a 1997 teal green
Ford Expedition. A uniformed base officer asked for identification and "Quintana
appeared confused and stated he had made a wrong turn," according to the
When asked again for identification, Quintana said he did not have any. Quintana
was told to stay in the vehicle while the officer contacted law enforcement
officials at the base.
But Quintana hit the accelerator and went through the entry point despite being
told to stop. The officer activated "bollards," or vertical posts
designed to keep unauthorized people from getting into the base, but Quintana
smashed into the bollards and caused "extensive damage," the complaint
Quintana then took off on foot with three officers in pursuit. A base-wide
search began and Quintana was picked up at 10:30 a.m.
Law enforcement officials discovered that the vehicle Quintana was driving had been reported stolen Aug. 17 to the Weber County Sheriff's Office and that Quintana did not have a valid driver's license.
His first court appearance is set for Sept. 1 before U.S. Magistrate Judge
Paul Warner. Quintana is being held in the Davis County Jail.
