Gene Kennedy reportingAuthorities in Summit County say they've taken a serial burglar off the streets.
Summit County sheriff's deputies are interviewing a 19-year-old man they've arrested. Investigators think Nicholas Gulli hit at least three businesses in the last 48 hours, maybe more.
Two days ago, deputies say Gulli burglarized an espresso shop at a Smith's grocery store. Investigators say he threw a propane tank through the window and then took off with cash from the register.
Then last night, authorities say Gulli allegedly burglarized a Subway restaurant and Davanza's at the Junction restaurant.
Authorities found him fairly easily after a citizen saw a bloodied man walking into the Best Western/Landmark Inn.
Once inside, the hotel clerk also became suspicious. Capt. Dean Carr of the Summit County Sheriff's Office, says, "Well as I understand it, the individual paid for his motel room with bloody money, and we knew the individual who had broken into the business cut himself."
Deputies searched a hotel room and found two men inside, one of them was Gulli. Authorities say there was evidence led them to arrest him Gulli.
He's in the Summit County Jail on two counts of burglary but could face additional charges.
Deputies think he may be responsible for more crimes.
Park City police have dealt with this young man before. He was arrested in late March on a retail theft charge.
