Salt Lake City woman arrested
A 27-year-old Salt Lake City woman and McPolin Elementary School teacher’s aide is facing multiple counts of burglary and possession charges after she was connected to thefts victimizing fellow teachers in the Park City School District.
Kayla D. Goodrich made an initial appearance on Monday, Nov. 3, in the Third District Court at the Summit County Justice Center, where she was formally charged with eight second-degree felonies and four third-degree felonies, including attempted burglary, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
After interviewing Goodrich at McPolin Elementary School, Sheriff’s deputies say she admitted to burglarizing individuals in the area, including two fellow teachers. Goodrich was a part-time employee with the Park City School District for eight years.
According to Tim McConnell, PCSD associate superintendent of Human Resources, based on information in the probable cause documents, the Park City School District is terminating her employment.
After Goodrich consented to having her vehicle searched, deputies found pill bottles from the burglaries, a booklet containing the names and addresses of Park City School District employees, a pry bar, and $3,100 in cash, according to the probable cause statement.
Deputies were able to link Goodrich to seven burglaries and three attempted burglaries.
Goodrich was arrested on Tuesday, Oct. 21 and posted her $94,000 bail the same day.
The defendant has hired criminal defense attorney Gerry D’Elia, who did not return calls from The Park Record by press time.
Goodrich will be back in court on Monday, Dec. 1, at 9 a.m., at the Summit County Justice Center.
