Sheriff’s Report


Between Wednesday, Feb. 12, and Monday, Feb. 18, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to calls including the following:

An individual who saw a 37-year-old Hispanic male and a 12-year-old girl at a rest stop on Interstate 80 believed the girl is listed on the Missing & Exploited Children website. A report was referred to investigations.

A traffic stop was conducted on a vehicle after it was observed to be driving erratically in South Summit. The driver was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Deputies responded to a domestic violence incident in the Snyderville Basin in which the suspect was still in the house. Officers followed tracks in the snow outside the house and apprehended the suspect without incident.

A man reported that the rear window of his vehicle was broken into while it was parked in the Newpark area. Nothing was taken from inside and there were no suspects at the time of the report.

Deputies stopped a man for soliciting on State Road 224. He moved back to the sidewalk after being warned, but was later seen back in the median, approaching cars. The man was arrested and a search of his backpack yielded two prescriptions not belonging to the man.

A vehicle was stopped for driving 64 mph in a 50 mph zone on S.R. 248. The driver was arrested for driving under the influence after he failed field sobriety tests.

A man reported that after he returned to his vehicle from a Kimball Junction business there was damage to the left rear corner of his Acura SUV and a note on the window. The note was from a witness who said they saw a Lexus RX300 try to park next to the Acura and hit it. The driver was tracked down and said she did not know what to do in the situation and was given a warning.

A man in South Summit withstood multiple injuries from being assaulted by a man who had been riding his snowmobile through the area too fast, according to the man who was assaulted. Several other individuals were arrested on multiple charges for assaulting the man, who was taken to Park City Medical Center.

A woman in the Basin reported that her front passenger window had been broken out and two CD cases full of CDs were taken. There were no suspects or obtainable evidence at the time of the report.

A young female was driving down a North Summit road and swerved off the road when she tried to pass someone who had actually been turning into a driveway. She took out a pole fence and caused extensive damage to her vehicle, but was uninjured. The property owner allowed the vehicle to be left on the scene.

A man was arrested for fraud for using a man’s Social Security number for tax purposes. When the victim tried to get a car loan, the suspect’s employee information was attached to his credit check. The man went to the business, in the Kimball Junction area, and the manager pulled up the employee’s information, finding a copy of a fake Social Security card. The suspect admitted to getting the card made and using it to get three different jobs over the last four years.

A vehicle was seen parked on the side of I-80 at a late hour. A deputy approached the driver, a woman, asking if everything was all right. She claimed she was driving too fast but did not know why she stopped. She showed signs of impairment and performed poorly on field sobriety tests. She was arrested for driving under the influence, possessing an open container and possessing marijuana.
