Rash of Burglaries in South Fork area of Provo Canyon

The Utah County Sheriff's Office Detective Division has investigated numerous Home Burglaries in South Fork of Provo Canyon. Suspects are using Forced entry to gain access into the homes. Suspects are ransacking the homes by going through all personal belongings.

Within the last two months, suspects have burglarized 14 homes. In some cases, suspects have disabled power and broken windows and doors. Suspects have taken a wide range of items including electronic equipment, guns, and including a wood stove. The value between damage and stolen property has been in the thousands of dollars.

Cabin owners are being advised to take precautions in securing their homes. The Detective Division is requesting anyone having information on the suspects to immediately contact them. A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and coviction of the suspects involved. Those having information are encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Office at 343-4100 or can leave a tip on a 24 hour recorded hot line- 370-UTIP. This hot line has been set up to allow citizens to leave tips for law enforcement without speaking to someone. We are encouraging and asking for assistance from our community in helping us catch these bad guys.
