Utah Attorney General’s Office burglary suspect arrested again for thefts
SALT LAKE CITY — A man who is accused of a string of robberies in Salt Lake City was in possession of multiple stolen items after being stopped by police Saturday morning.
At approximately 10 a.m., Salt Lake City Police officers were dispatched to a burglary call at a parking garage near 111 East 300 South.
According to the SLC PD, a witness gave officers a description of the suspect, but police were unable to find them as they searched the garage.
Shortly later, another witness noticed a man matching the description of the suspect looking into car windows near 250 South State Street.
When officers arrived and contacted the suspect, he refused to identify himself, according to the SLC PD.
Officers were able to confirm his identity as 44-year-old Anthony Jack, a suspect in two burglaries in Salt Lake City, including a burglary of the Utah Attorney General’s Office.
Jack had an active arrest warrant for his arrest, and police placed him in custody without further issue.
“During his arrest, officers located methamphetamine in Jack’s pocket, two credit cards stolen during a purse snatching, and a bag of physical keys and electronic keycards belonging to several local businesses and other property that did not belong to Jack,” reads the police statement. “The purse snatching happened on Saturday, Dec. 10”
SLC PD didn’t say what charges they are booking Jack for, but he was in the process of being booked into the Salt Lake County Jail as of Saturday.
