Recovery of a stolen vehicle
While patrolling the area near Trailside Drive, Deputies were alerted by the license plate reader of a stolen plate on a parked Basin Recreation Transit Van. The plate’s registration returned to a similar vehicle registered to Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake County. The registration was confirmed, and the plate was seized as recovered stolen property. The vehicle’s plates are presumed stolen, as the registered plates were no longer with the corresponding VINs with the car. Attempted contact with Basin Recreation was unsuccessful, and a message was left with their contact number.
Deputies responded to a welfare check in the parking lot of Bell’s Sinclair on Silver Creek Rd. The complainant reported that an individual had been sitting in his vehicle for approximately 4-5 hours and appeared to be slumped over in the driver’s seat. Deputies tried making contact, but the driver was unresponsive. Resuscitation efforts were made but discontinued when it became apparent that the individual had died.
Investigations and the on-call OME responded and conducted their investigations. Mortuary services transported the body of the 47-year-old Wyoming man, and the vehicle was towed hold for owner. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

A 28-year-old male was found sleeping in an upstairs hallway at a hotel on Canyons Resort Drive. The hotel staff wanted him removed from the premises. Deputies offered the man all the resources that were available to them, and he refused all of them. Deputies offered to give the man a ride to the shelter in Salt Lake City, but he refused. Deputies provided the man with additional warm clothing, and he walked away from the property. He was trespassed from the hotel.
The victim was alerted that his debit card was attempted to be used at TJ Maxx in Kimball Junction this evening. Deputies were contacted by the victim, who said his wallet was stolen in Heber City, and a theft report was made there. The debit card was locked, so no money was lost.
The deputy contacted the manager at TJ Maxx, and she said they would locate footage of the person using the debit card and would get back to us. The manager said the person using the card had several different cards he attempted to use, but they were all declined. This case will be forwarded to Investigations.
