Local News

SANDY (News4Utah)-  Police in Sandy are looking for two people accused of taking a Jeep from a garage and then returning days later to burglarize the victim’s home.

Officers say the pair took the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee from the victim’s garage around 3 a.m. on

Stolen Jeep

April 10th. 

Then, around 1:40 p.m. on April 27th, police say the suspects returned to the home near 8900 South Heights Dr. in the stolen Jeep and took several things from inside the victim’s home.

The homeowner, named Angie, told News4Utah when her Jeep was first stolen detectives told her it’s rare suspects ever return. She said that’s what makes this second theft so scary.

“Couldn’t believe it, I was just scared and felt really violated,” said Angie.

What shocked Angie was seeing her Jeep still being used by the suspects. Investigators believe they may have used the garage door opener to gain access the second time around.

Angie said the suspects took money, a gun safe with a firearm in it, and all of her jewelry. Some of those pieces include family heirlooms which she’s most upset about.

“Those I’ll never be able to replace,” said Angie. “You know everything else is monetary, but those family Heirlooms passed down that’s the hardest thing.”

Police released video where the suspects can be seen walking in front of the home several times:

The female is described as a caucasian with a pink top and a peach colored skirt with sandals. The male is described as wearing a baseball style hat, dark colored long sleeve shirt and baggy pants.
