NEWS - “Update on auto thefts, burgs”


BOTHWELL, HONEYVILLE - September 2, 2021


Deputies and detectives from the Box Elder County Sheriff's Department are working on a neighborhood canvas concerning recent auto thefts and burglaries. In a theft on September 1, in the Bothwell area, a Volkswagen Atlas SUV was discovered missing. That vehicle was recovered in Davis County and is being processed for leads. A Toyota Camry taken in Honeyville on August 26, has yet to be found.


These two cases are being worked together because they are so similar in nature, according to a press release.


The press release also noted that there have been postings on social media from citizens who claim to be victims, but those reports have not made their way to the Sheriff's Office.


Deputies are asking those who have been victimized in either Bothwell or Honeyville or in other areas of the county to contact Dispatch at 435-723-6890. Those who may have possible leads, no matter how minor they may appear, are also asked to make contact so a deputy can respond.


The Sheriff's Office is once again warning the public to never, ever leave anything of value in a vehicle, no matter where they may live. Always remove the keys and lock all vehicles. If away from home, lock your doors. Do the same when retiring at night, and leave some sort of outdoor lighting on or have them connected to motion sensors. Security cameras, even doorbell cameras, are also good deterrents.
