Woman in disbelief her stolen SUV returned for second burglary of her home
SANDY, Utah — Lightning isn’t supposed to strike twice, but a woman was questioning Monday why her townhome was burglarized twice in less than three weeks, leading to the theft of her SUV and several valuables with personal significance.
Angela, who asked that only her first name be used over fears of her personal security, said her gray 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee was initially stolen from her garage near 8900 S. Heights Dr. in the early morning hours of April 10.
“I walked down to the garage to get in my car to go to work like I do every day, and the garage was open and my Jeep was gone,” Angela said.
The woman didn’t expect that just a little over two weeks later, on April 27, she would come home in the afternoon to find her home had been burglarized again.
Her bedroom had been ransacked, and she was missing a gun safe and a lock box containing family heirloom jewelry.
“They were passed down, you know, to me from my grandmother and my mother,” the woman said. “That’s been the hardest thing.”
Angela said the disbelief grew when she watched on a neighbor’s surveillance video and saw her stolen Jeep had returned to the neighborhood on the day of the second burglary.
Sandy Police Sgt. Jason Nielsen described a man and woman, seen on the video driving the SUV and walking along the street, as suspects.
The woman was seen wearing a pink top and peach-colored skirt with sandals, while the man was seen wearing a baseball-style hat, dark-colored, long-sleeve shirt and baggy pants.
Investigators said anyone who recognizes the man and woman, or has any other information in the case, should call Sandy Police Department at 801-568-7200 or the anonymous tipline at 801-568-INFO.
“It’s been unsettling — you feel violated,” Angela said. “It’s a scary feeling, definitely.”
