The Park City Police Department Say All Five Burglaries Tied To The Same Suspect


Five Park City businesses were recently burglarized within a 13 hour period and days later, there are still no arrests. Melissa Allison brings us the story:

After responding to a call from the Fairweather Natural Foods Market on Iron Horse Drive, Park City Police Department Sergeant Jay Randall checked the surrounding area and discovered the back door to the adjoining business had been broken into.

By the time everything was said and done – a total of five businesses including the Windy Ridge Café and Shred Industries had been burglarized.

The police don’t currently have any suspects but Captain Phil Kirk said the criminal did leave some evidence linking the cases.

“We believe that all five of them are connected," Kirk said. "Similar type of entry, similar type of items that were taken about the same time of night, you know, in similar areas. So there are a lot of different things going on that seem to point to the same individual, or individuals involved. We still think there’s a strong enough connection between them that it’s probably the same suspects.”

The victims are working with the police and Kirk said they hope to nip this in the bud real quick.

“Very unusual that we have break-ins in the first place but to have five the same night, or, you know, Sunday night, Monday morning," Kirk said. "That in itself is a rarity and hopefully will be in the future. We’re hoping that it’s somebody we can get into custody as soon as possible with the developing some leads here.  We do have some evidence but we can always use help.”

The police are in the process of analyzing the evidence they gathered from the crime scenes and Kirk encouraged anyone who has any information to call the department at 435 615-3600.
