Brigham City Man Arrested For Vehicle Burglary

Summit County Sheriff's Office

Summit County deputies arrested a Utah man last week who was preying on automobiles--and also golf carts.

Charging documents in Third District Court identify the suspect a 46-year-old Dennis Mark Christensen, a resident of Brigham City.

The filing, and also an incident report, says that last Tuesday, the 7th, the suspect took a golf cart at the Jeremy golf course and drove it around, then was stopped by an employee from taking another cart.

He was observed looking into people's belongings, in both cars and golf carts.

The suspect then went to the construction area near I-80 and opened the doors to several vehicles. A construction worker asked him what he was doing, and he said he needed the cars and money. When officers arrived, Christensen said he was trying to get out of there and go to California.

Christensen is charged with Attempted Theft, Vehicle Burglary, and Wrongful Appropriation. He is due to make his first appearance in court this Monday.

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
