Sheriff’s report: Sheriff’s substation burglarized at Outlets Park City

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office substation at the Outlets Park City was burglarized on Sunday, according to Sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Wright.

The office has maintained that station for years, Wright said, but this is the first time he has ever heard of it being burglarized.

The suspect clearly rifled through the office and made off with a police radio, Wright said. Both doors were open, and he said it appeared someone had used a credit card to jimmy the locks. The outer door is emblazoned with a huge Sheriff’s Office logo, and he said deputies were shocked that someone would have the guts to break into an obvious law enforcement domain.

He said the substation contains some physical training equipment but no weapons or other valuable items. The office is considering adding deadbolts in the future, Wright said.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement responded to several other calls between Monday, Oct. 14, and Sunday, Oct. 20, including ceasing the active search for a hunter in the Uintas and tasing an unruly patron of a Kamas bar.

Deputies assisted the Utah Highway Patrol with several accidents that caused injuries.

Summit County Search and Rescue terminated the command center and suspended the active search for the missing hunter near Lyman Lake. Wright indicated the search would continue as weather and resources allow, and that the team would follow up on all leads.

An 80-year-old Marion man died Sunday night. Emergency personnel suspended lifesaving procedures after about 25 minutes once they discovered a do-not-resuscitate order.

A Murray woman was tased and taken to jail after refusing to leave a Kamas bar. She was intoxicated and asked to leave multiple times. After leaving, she was stopped by a Kamas police officer. She was tased during the traffic stop. She was booked into jail for outstanding warrants and suspicion of intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Deputies assisted Utah Highway Patrol on numerous slide-offs and accidents on state roads.

Residents of the Wild Willow neighborhood in Francis reported four youths causing damage in the area. Deputies responded to numerous criminal mischief and theft calls in the area, including multiple damaged mailboxes and smashed pumpkins. Deputies indicated they would patrol the area.

A 26-year-old Park City woman allegedly stole $60 from the till of a Kimball Junction business she formerly worked for. Deputies indicated they had surveillance footage, a signed statement from the employee and that they would attempt to contact the woman.

Wednesday, Oct. 16

A woman who attempted to evade deputies by speeding into her garage and shutting the garage door turned herself into authorities after a warrant was issued for her arrest. Deputies indicated they had originally smelled alcohol on the woman and that a possible DUI charge would likely be replaced by a felony evading charge. A deputy thwarted the garage door with his foot by tripping the signal that put the door back up. The woman then ran into her house and closed the door.

A 22-year-old man racked up $700 on a company credit card without permission and went on the run. The person who notified the Sheriff’s Office indicated he thought the man was on the run from a previous case. Deputies indicted they would follow up with the bank and the case would be screened with the County Attorney’s Office for charges.

An unknown suspect robbed an unlocked vehicle parked off Kilby Road. Deputies indicated the case would be forwarded to the Investigations Division.

A man’s friend found the man’s stolen vehicle in Salt Lake City, and the Salt Lake Police Department confirmed the vehicle, processed it for evidence and returned it to its rightful owner.
