County Sheriff’s Report

An alleged rape currently being investigated by detectives that occurred near Kamas in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest on July 24 wasn’t reported to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office until Nov. 8. The 13-year-old victim’s grandmother reported the crime at 8:55 a.m., a Sheriff’s Office media report states.

According to Summit County sheriff’s Capt. Joe Offret, her sister’s 23-year-old boyfriend while camping in the forest raped the girl. All parties involved in the alleged crime are believed to be from the Salt Lake area. Meanwhile, a South Summit man suspects a former renter of stealing about $2,000 worth of video games and DVDs from his house on S.R. 32. The crime was reported to the Sheriff’s Office after he returned home from church Nov. 13. The case is under investigation. In a separate matter, a Coalville man claims that after confronting someone who broke into his home around 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 he realized his jacket was missing. The female suspect, who was charged with trespassing, claimed she went into the home to borrow 50 cents. She was not charged in connection to the missing jacket. A verbal altercation ensued Nov. 13 in Francis after a Volkswagen struck a trailer parked at a home. According to Summit County sheriff’s Capt. Joe Offret, the suspect left the scene and was stopped by deputies later that day. The suspects returned to the scene and apologized to the homeowner, Offret said. Dispatchers have received several complaints about loud partying at a house on Mahre Drive in Sun Peak after partiers allegedly damaged a tree in a man’s yard Nov. 12. Investigators have located no suspects in connection to an alleged purse snatching from a shopping cart at Wal-Mart at Kimball Junction on Nov. 12 at 3:07 p.m. Meanwhile, two men who drove into the Henefer landfill on Nov. 11 at 4 p.m. were unable to leave. "When they tried to leave someone had closed and locked the gate," Offret stated. "They were rescued." The Summit County Attorney’s Office is determining whether assault charges will be filed in relation to a fight between co-workers in the county on Nov. 10 at 7:35 a.m. No one was seriously injured in the altercation.
