County Sheriff’s Report

Last week, a dog-handler at the Summit County Sheriff’s Office was preparing to deploy a K9 unit when two suspects surrendered near Chalk Creek Road in Coalville, investigators say.

"Both individuals came out of the cabin (near Chalk Creek)," said Andrew Leatham, a deputy in Summit County. "They complied with our requests to come out."

Officers had responded to a case of domestic violence on East Chalk Creek Road, he said, adding that the man and woman who were reportedly fighting were arrested Sept. 22 around 11 p.m.

The woman, who was wanted on domestic-violence allegations, could also face a charge of public intoxication, Leatham added.

Other calls received recently by county dispatchers included:

One man was arrested for felony aggravated assault on Sept. 23 after he allegedly threatened a man with a baseball bat in an apparent case of road rage on Interstate 80 in the Snyderville Basin, investigators say.

At the time of the alleged threats, the vehicles were traveling east on Interstate 80 around 7:40 a.m., Leatham said, adding that the suspect was eventually arrested near Silver Summit.

The suspect allegedly waved a bat at another driver outside the window of the sport-utility vehicle, he said, adding that the felony charge is "because of the weapon being involved."

On Sept. 23, a 3-year-old girl became separated from her parent at the Tanger Outlet Center for roughly 30 minutes.

"Deputies responded and began a systematic search," Leatham said, adding that they found the child within about 10 minutes.

But the case was referred to the Utah Division of Child and Family Services because "we had responded to almost exactly the same call involving the child in July," Leatham said.
