Sheriff’s Report


Between Thursday, Jan. 2, and Sunday, Jan. 5, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to calls including the following:

A manager at a business in the Snyderville Basin reported that an unknown suspect had attempted to break into the business between Dec. 31 and Jan. 2. A door had fresh tool marks on the door jamb and the handle was bent. It did not appear that the suspect gained entry to the building and there were no suspects at the time of the report.

A deputy conducted a follow-up investigation for a hit-and-run incident near Canyons Resort, issuing a citation to an individual.

A man in Summit Park reported that someone in New York had removed his phone line from a company and added nine other lines. The man filed a report with the Federal Trade Commission and the company. The case was referred for investigation.

A deputy was dispatched to a possible auto theft in the Basin. It was later determined that it was a repossession by a tow company of vehicle belonging to an individual with an outstanding warrant, who was later taken into custody.

Dispatch was contacted by the police department of Steamboat Springs, Colo., after they had recovered several stolen Utah license plates that were taken Dec. 23. The vehicle with the stolen license plates was impounded and the Sheriff’s Office is waiting on additional information from the agency.
