Deputies nab one of Summit County’s most wanted

By Patrick Parkinson, of The Record staff

One of the most wanted fugitives in the Park City area was taken into custody last week after the Summit County Sheriff’s Office staked out the suspect’s home.

A $20,000 warrant had been issued for the arrest of Lee Hindin, 41, who is accused of felony charges related to forgery and theft by deception, said Ron Bridge, a spokesman for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were acting on tips from the public when they did surveillance at Hindin’s home the evening of Jan. 21, Bridge said.

"Hindin arrived and was taken into custody without incident," Bridge said.

Hindin was booked into the Summit County jail. Hindin posted bail and was released from jail Jan. 21, according to a jail official.

"We knew this warrant was going to be issued so we actually started looking for him prior to the warrant being issued," Bridge said.

Tips deputies received from acquaintances of Hindin led officers to a restaurant in Park City, Bridge said.

Hindin was not there but was later arrested at his house.
