Utah man recognizes burglary suspect in video: his son

Woods Cross • A Utah man watching a TV news program recognized his son as a suspect in a computer store burglary, and persuaded his son to surrender to authorities, officers said.

The two were eating breakfast Friday morning when the father recognized his son in surveillance tapes that police released on the burglary, said Woods Cross police Detective Adam Osoro.

Jeremy Blair of Kaysville turned himself in later Friday to the Davis County Sheriff’s Office.

“The dad is a really nice man,” Osoro said.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports that while the 26-year-old Blair was booked into the county jail on an unrelated warrant, the county attorney’s office is reviewing the burglary case for formal charges.

Blair and another man are accused of smashing front windows and taking about $6,500 in computer equipment from StarWest Computers in Woods Cross early Monday morning.

One of the suspects “wasn’t careful with his hoodie,” and pulled back the hood so his full face showed up on surveillance tape, said Dave Jones, vice president of Starwest Computers.

Police are still searching for the other suspect.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Blair had an attorney. Osoro said Blair refused to talk to him at the jail and asked for a lawyer.

The unrelated warrant charges Blair with third-degree felony counts of burglary and criminal mischief.
