County Sheriff’s Report

Snyderville Basin residents contacted the Summit County Sheriff’s Office Nov. 2 to report a suspicious man near the Quarry Mountain neighborhood. But they didn’t know the car he was driving was allegedly stolen.

According to Capt. Joe Offret, "a man was going door to door asking for tools to change a flat tire."

After a deputy realized the car was listed as stolen in St. George on Oct. 29, the suspect fled toward a hillside, Offret said.

"Considering the situation to be high risk, [the deputy] drew his weapon The defendant complied at the outset but then ran," court papers filed by prosecutors state.

Summit County deputy Merrick Pack failed to catch the man on foot, prosecutors state. Officers established a perimeter around the area. The suspect was later spotted at a convenience store in Park City "and taken into custody without resistance by a Summit County deputy," Offret added.

The Ford Contour was allegedly stolen from a mechanic’s shop in Southern Utah. Park City police officers and the Utah Highway Patrol assisted in the arrest of 30-year-old Dustin Senn, who is from the Ogden area.

Senn is facing a second-degree felony charge for receiving or transferring a stolen motor vehicle. The suspect is also charged with failure to stop at the command of a law enforcement officer, a class A misdemeanor.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Senn in Third District Court at Silver Summit Nov. 29.
