Sheriff’s Report, March 2-4, 2016
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to approximately 10 vehicle burglaries last week in a Snyderville Basin-area neighborhood.
According to Sgt. Ron Bridge, dispatch received a call from someone reporting an individual acting suspiciously. Deputies responded to the area and were unable to locate the suspect, Bridge said.
The following day, the Sheriff’s Office received information from Salt Lake City officers that suspects who had been taken into custody on unrelated charges were in possession of several items from Basin-area residents.
"During that investigation they found a whole bunch of stolen items in their car so we put the word out and heard from nearly 10 people," Bridge said. "Something that was interesting was none of the cars had forced entry and were all unlocked or sitting in an open garage.
"Citizens need to help us help them," he said. "Secure your belongings as best as you can so that particular person just might pass by your house."
An investigation is ongoing. Bridge said the Sheriff’s Office is "looking forward to making an arrest."
