***UPDATE*** - Tips from the public help to quickly identify the suspects. One arrest made, more to follow.
***UPDATE, December 24, 2018*** After this incident hit the media, a LOT of people called to tell us who the suspects were. With this information, Eagle Mountain Deputies were able to link the suspects to a house in Eagle Mountain. A search warrant was obtained and Deputies and Detectives from the Utah County Sheriff's Office served it late Sunday night. During the service of the warrant one of the suspects drove by the house. Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, however, evaded Deputies by driving through fields and fences. His vehicle eventually became disabled and he was taken into custody. The suspect was identified as 34 year old Bradlee Kalkbrenner of Pleasant Grove. He was booked into the Utah County jail on multiple counts of vehicle burglary, possession of stolen property (found at the house and in his vehicle), and several drug charges. Bail on the new charges has been set at $29,920 cash only. Kalkbrenner was also booked into jail on a warrant out of 4th District Court with a cash only bail amount of $25,000.00. Investigators are still looking for the other suspect(s) in this case, and will continue to follow-up on multiple leads. The Sheriff's office would like to thank all those that were willing to call in tips to help solve this case. Your tips helped identify both individuals, and we expect a second arrest soon!
