Two cars stolen in the Basin

Two vehicles were stolen from a parking lot in Kimball Junction last week after the owners of the vehicles left the keys inside their vehicles for an extended period of time.

According to Summit County Detective Sergeant Ron Bridge, the first vehicle, a white EcoLine van with "Wasatch Audio and Visual" written in large letters on the side and back, was stolen on Wednesday, June 20.

A second vehicle, a red Chevrolet Camaro, was stolen from a nearby parking lot on Thursday, June 21, at 9 p.m. Both vehicles had been left unlocked with the keys in the vehicle or in the ignition.

The Camaro was located two hours later by the Salt Lake City Police Department next to an auto body shop in Salt Lake City. A caller reported two suspicious people, a male between the age of 35 and 40 and a female with blonde hair on a black chopper motorcycle. Deputies are still searching for the suspects, according to Bridge.

"Both cars that were stolen had the keys in the car," Bridge said. "Residents need to make sure their cars are secured, windows are rolled up and the doors are locked."
