A 20-year-old man is in jail in Washington County on a $50,000 warrant for alleged rape after the fugitive was stopped in St. George for a headlight violation.

On Sunday, Kody Brent King, of Fish Haven, Idaho, was arrested during the traffic stop shortly before 10 p.m. after a routine background check revealed the suspect had an active arrest warrant issued out of Soda Springs, Idaho, on a felony rape charge.  

The bail amount was set at $50,000, according to the warrant issued out of 6th District Court that was signed by Magistrate David Kress on Nov. 4, 2021, in Caribou County, which sits approximately 115 miles southeast of Idaho Falls. The warrant is extraditable out of all chain states, meaning any state that borders Idaho, including Utah.
