Fake School Threat Called Diversion Attempt In Truck Theft
PLAIN CITY, Utah (AP) — Weber County authorities say a man is accused of phoning in a fake threat to a school to divert a law enforcement officer from an investigation of a stolen truck.
The Sheriff’s Office says 28-year-old Kevin Powers was arrested Thursday on suspicion of obstruction of justice and other crimes following an investigation conducted after police responded to the fake threat against Fremont High School.
According to the office, the fake threat was made as a sheriff’s sergeant approached the stolen truck in Plain City but the vehicle was gone when the sergeant returned after responding to the threat.
The vehicle then was found several miles away, and Powers’ arrest resulted from the ensuing investigation.
Online court records don’t indicate whether Powers has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
