Cops nab burglary suspect

A suspect who officers believed burglarized two stores was nabbed April 24 at a hotel at Kimball Junction.

Deputies who responded to an alarm at the Subway restaurant at 1612 Ute Blvd. found an object was thrown through the glass front door.

A man was seen running near Landmark Drive a few minutes later, according to Summit County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Brad Wilde, adding that the Davanza’s at the Junction restaurant at 6531 N. Landmark Drive was also burglarized that night.

Investigators contacted employees at the Landmark Inn who claimed the suspect paid for a room that night with mostly $1 bills.

"The suspicious male also appeared to have a fresh cut on his hand," a press release from the Sheriff’s Office states.

Deputies were reportedly given consent to search a room in the hotel where they allegedly found items that lead them to believe an occupant of the room did the burglaries.

A 19-year-old man was booked into jail and faces felony burglary counts.

According to Wilde, detectives are investigating whether the suspect committed other burglaries in western Summit County.
