Between Friday, Dec. 6, and Monday, Dec. 9, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to calls including the following:
An individual in the Snyderville Basin reported that his 14-year-old son was missing from the home along with the family’s vehicle. The son also took $500-600 in cash. The man believed the son was headed back to Tennessee where the family used to live and he was later found by the Nebraska State Patrol and taken into custody.
A woman stated that a relative of hers had bought a used car which was later stolen from the parking lot of an apartment complex in the Basin. Follow-up is being conducted on the case.
Deputies were dispatched to a report of an intoxicated male throwing snow balls at the caller’s vehicle near a Kimball Junction business. During the investigation, the male and a female were found to be under the influence of alcohol. The woman later became disorderly and slapped the man in the deputy’s presence and was arrested.
An anonymous individual reported an underage party involving alcohol at a hotel in the Basin. One juvenile was booked into custody and another was cited for consumption of alcohol. A male adult was reportedly having a birthday party for his 17-year-old daughter.
Deputies responded to a report of a theft in progress in North Summit. Upon arrival, it was determined the caller was an individual who lives alone and suffers from dementia.
Deputies responded to Park City Medical Center on the report of a sex offense. The case is still under investigation due to the trouble in locating other parties involved.
A white GMC truck with a utility trailer was found to be parked in violation of a county winter parking ordinance in the Basin. The owner was unable to be contacted and the vehicle was towed and the owner cited.
A man contacted the Sheriff’s Office twice wanting a keep-the-peace with an individual seeking a protective order against him in the Basin. Both times he was denied, as he had attempted to speak with the individual.
A stolen snowboard was recovered by deputies in the Basin. The individual stated he had bought the snowboard from someone online, but the serial number matched up with the one that was stolen. The snowboard was returned to its original owner.
Deputies responded to a possible domestic violence incident in South Summit, where it was determined the incident was only a verbal argument. The case was sent for screening to the County Attorney.
During a traffic stop on State Road 224, a driver was found to have an alcohol-revoked driver license and had failed to install an ignition interlock device. The owner of the vehicle who had responded was found to have several active warrants for his arrest. Both were arrested and booked into the Summit County Jail.
