Former Park City School District student detained for robbery

Park City School District

Summit County Sheriff's deputies have detained a former Park City School District student accused of armed robbery.

The Park City School District sent a press release to parents shortly after noon Wednesday.

It said that a boy, who is under 18 and could be a former student, is suspected in a robbery committed Tuesday night in Summit County. No further details about the crime are public, except that it involved “what appeared to be a weapon.”

According to the press release, there is no threat to staff or students.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office, which is leading the investigation, declined to comment further because the suspect is a juvenile.

The Park City School District said it has upped security, including increasing the police presence at schools, but deferred to the sheriff’s office when asked for comment.

This is a developing story. Park City School District released an update around 4:30 p.m. that the suspect was detained around 4 p.m.
