    Suspects Arrested in Overnight Car Burglaries
    November 27th, 2007 @ 4:04pm
    Gene Kennedy reporting

    Thieves broke into nine cars overnight at several apartment complexes in Murray. The suspects are behind bars, but now the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office has a quite a job on its hands.

    Sheriff's deputies spent the day returning stolen stereos and sorting out who was victimized in all this.

    In total, nine cars were burglarized in the area of 4100 South and 500 East. The crooks were after car stereos and other electrical equipment.

    One of the thieves was staying with friends at Stonehedge Apartments in Murray. That complex was hit, as was another one nearby.



    A security guard caught them in the act. "He was just making his rounds, spotted a couple suspicious males, and followed up on it. When he followed them around the property he noticed there were some windows broken," explained Mike Gunn, CEO of Metro Protective Agency. "My officer spotted them again hopping over the fence with some merchandise."



    The security guard detained the two until deputies arrived. The sheriff's office arrested Hector Jimenez and Hector Sanchez-Garcia, both 19 years old.

    Gunn showed Eyewitness News video of other vehicle burglaries in progress. He says there's been a rash of them lately at Murray apartment complexes. "The arrest they made at Stonehedge, we're trying to determine if it's connected in anyway, if it's the same people," Gunn said.

    Right now, the two suspects are in jail just on suspicion of this morning's burglaries.

      It's amazing - the same people who run security down will praise them in the next breath for something they did for them - but around the corner will bad mouth them again. Nice point made which lead to something positive.

        Im hoping this security officer was Armed. Approaching burglary suspects unarmed is extremely dangerous. just look at the story about 6 months ago about the allied Barton officer who was shot challenging a subject loitering in the bushes.

            Working apartments unarmed would really be asking for trouble. They are some of the most dangerous assignments you can get.

              Ive worked section 8 properties unarmed. We've had rapes and other violent crimes on those properties and I was still required to work them with only a baton and oc spray.

                Nice work by the guard, but as others have posted, you have got to be real careful when handling incidents like this.

                  That's what I was thinking - very risky for unarmed security. Still, regardless of the details, I'm glad it ended with a positive outcome.

                  BTW: Ever notice that some O&R companies love to take credit when an officer takes a chance and it works out to their credit, but distance themselves as much as possible when things goes south..
