10:38 p.m. To the 3300 block of Laura Ln. for a reported burglary. A man said he awoke because his dog alerted him to someone knocking on the front door. When he approached the door, he saw a man he has known for a long time standing on the porch. The resident decided not to answer the door to see what happened next. The man on the porch then walked around to the side of the house and to the back patio, where he approached the back door and examined it closely. He then left in a blue Chevy pickup truck that he recognized as belonging to the suspect’s uncle. The suspect then came back about 20 minutes later, only this time, he was hauling a trailer on the back of the truck. He backed the trailer down the resident’s driveway, at which time, he called 911 because he knew something was about to happen. The original suspect and two other males got out of the truck, and the homeowner retrieved his gun in case they attempted to harm him. The resident walked out the front door and saw three men standing at the corner of his garage, and one of them was carrying a milk crate, and the other was holding a crowbar. He confronted the men, and the original suspect said repeatedly that his truck broke down, then dropped the milk crate, and two of them got back into the truck and sped away, while another fled west through his yard toward Old Mill. Deputies were unable to locate the truck, nor any footprints at the scene. The resident told deputies that the original suspect lives with a relative in Snyderville, and the deputy passed along the info to an OSP trooper who had arrived for backup. The resident told them that he knows the original suspect has a bad heroin addiction. He said the suspect also knows what valuables he keeps at his home, and that is why he was targeted.
