Local News

CENTERVILLE, Utah (ABC4 News) – Police are looking for two suspects involved in an aggravated robbery in Centerville Tuesday evening. 

Police said they responded to a call of an aggravated armed robbery near 650 South and 800 East.

According to police, four men assaulted someone in a vehicle and brandished a firearm during the robbery. The suspects were able to get away with the victim’s wallet. Police believe the victim is an acquaintance of the suspects.

The victim was transported to the hospital where he was treated for injuries he sustained during the robbery. 

Centerville police were able to locate the suspect at a home in Farmington near Shepard Lane. When they arrived, police said the suspects ran out of the home and got into two separate vehicles and took off. 

Police attempted traffic stops on both vehicles. One of the vehicles stopped, and officers took the suspect into custody. He has been identified Ricardo Jesus Quintero, 18.

The suspects in the other car reportedly crashed on the side of I-15 near Glovers Lane going southbound in Farmington but got out of the car and fled the scene on foot. 

At one point during the search, police used K9s and helicopters.

Police are interviewing the suspect in custody to find out what actually happened. 

One of the outstanding suspects police were looking for was 19-year-old Abraham Valdez Alonso with ties to the Farmington area. Wednesday evening police said Alonso turned himself in and has since been booked into the Davis County Jail. 

Alonso was booked for aggravated robbery and assault and are still looking for the other two outstanding suspects.

No shots were fired during the course of the incident, according to police. 

Centerville police are leading the investigation with help from Farmington police and Davis County Sherrif’s Office. 

Police said members of the public need not worry, but they should be on alert. In an interview with ABC4, they said:

“We would encourage them to call 911 if they see anybody hiding or not looking like they belong to the area or acting suspicious and we’ll investigate that and see if we can’t apprehend the additional suspects.”

Two suspects remain on the loose.
