County Sheriff’s Report

Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies this week had not located a black 2000 Audi A4 allegedly stolen from the Tanger Outlet Center around 5 p.m. on June 14, authorities said.

"The keys were left in the car," Sheriff’s Office Capt. Sherm Farnsworth said, adding that the owner of the car left the doors unlocked.

The woman parked the car near the Nine West store and "came back about 10 or 15 minutes later and found that the car was no longer there," Farnsworth added.

Meanwhile, Farnsworth praised the restraint shown by his deputy who was involved in an alleged altercation with an intoxicated man June 10 on eastbound Interstate 80.

"[The deputy] had him out at gunpoint," Farnsworth said. "He could have shot him."

The suspect was located in Snyderville after he allegedly fled from officers in Salt Lake County, he said, adding that the man didn’t stop until another motorist slammed into him on I-80.

But the suspect drove toward the deputy after he was ordered to get out of the vehicle, Farnsworth said, adding that the officer forced the man to stop the vehicle by breaking through a window with a collapsible baton.

"He got him out of the car and got him taken into custody," Farnsworth said. "The deputy used great restraint."

The suspect was reportedly arrested for aggravated assault on a police officer, evading a police officer and driving under the influence of alcohol and with an open container in the vehicle.

In a separate case, nobody has reported a Warren Jeffs sighting in Summit County since the fugitive was allegedly spotted at a hotel in Coalville in May, Farnsworth said.

Jeffs, a leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was recently added to the FBI’s Most Wanted List.

"The guest thought Warren Jeffs may have spent the night at the (Coalville) hotel (on May 1)," Farnsworth said, adding that the federal government hasn’t asked the Sheriff’s Office to follow any leads.
