Traffic stop turns into arrest of two wanted individuals and recovery of 100s of stolen items

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Summit Couty Sherriff Deputies responded to a broadcast of a BMW failing to stay in its lane and swerving into oncoming traffic on Friday. The driver, a 40-year-old Francis man named David Wilson, had a felony National Crime Information Center (NCIC) warrant for his arrest. The passenger, a 28-year-old West Valley woman, named Sheena Brimhall also had multiple NCIC warrants for her arrest. Both were taken into custody.

A sheriff’s deputy first saw the vehicle on U.S. Highway 40 and pursued it into the Park City Home Depot parking lot, where a traffic stop was attempted. Wilson evaded the deputy until he was stopped at the entrance to the parking lot.

Police obtained a search warrant for the car, where they discovered multiple stolen items, driver’s licenses, checks, tools, mail, laptops – one being a Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation laptop, and alarm protocol information. There was also a set of handcuffs and a knife that belonged to a former law enforcement officer.

Police then obtained a search warrant for Wilson’s home. Over 100 pieces of stolen property were recovered, with 48 potential victims being identified. Multiple deputies were involved and assisted by Utah Highway Patrol, Park City Police Department, Postal Inspection Service, and evidence technicians.

Wilson and Brimhall were charged with multiple felonies.

On Friday, Summit County Sheriff Deputies investigated a vehicle burglary where two firearms were stolen. The victim had two unlocked vehicles parked in front of his home, with keys inside. Both sets of keys were stolen. One of the vehicles, a grey Ford F-150, had the two firearms in the center console; both were stolen.

Police discovered the firearms at Wilson’s home in Francis.
