SUMMIT COUNTY -- Deputies in Summit County have arrested two people believed to be responsible for a burglary in Cottonwood Heights. Police say they stole more than $15,000 worth of items from a deceased woman.
Deputies arrested Michael C. Shields, 19, and 22-year-old Emily K. Holtz Tuesday afternoon. The deputies had received information from the Cottonwood Heights Police Department that the burglary suspects might be in the Kamas Valley, in a blue 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser.
As they received the information, deputies were responding to a report of a burglary at a residence in Francis. The witness told investigators that a man and a woman in a PT cruiser had stolen items from a home before heading on state Road 32.
Kamas city police and Summit County deputies spotted the vehicle at a grocery store. The Summit County Sheriff's Office said both suspects were taken into custody as they were committing a retail theft.
Both have been booked into the Summit County Jail for residential burglary and retail theft.
