MORGAN COUNTY, Utah — Two suspects who allegedly stole a pair of handguns in Salt Lake City and who were wanted for crimes in several other states are now in custody, and police said a FOX 13 News viewer who saw the pair in a news story directed officers to the suspects’ location.

Officials with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office confirm 31-year-old Daniel Lyman-Muzzy and 35-year-old Regina Collins are in custody after a FOX 13 News viewer saw the pair camping in East Canyon, recognized them from news coverage and called police. Police had warned earlier in the week the pair should be considered armed and dangerous.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the area, and Collins gave her real name while Lyman-Muzzy allegedly provided a fake name. The male had a weapon on his hip, and police located several other weapons and some drug paraphernalia at the scene of the arrest.

Both individuals have been booked into the Salt Lake County Jail.

Police released photos of the suspects this week, and they were wanted for allegedly stealing two handguns from a pawnshop in Salt Lake City in late June. The two are also wanted by the US Marshall’s Service for several crimes in other states.
