Authorities immediately arrested one of the suspects and the other was found in a nearby backyard after two witnesses called police about a man who had jumped the fence.

David K. Thongphon and Emilio Santiago Salazar, both 23, will likely now face numerous charges.

Officers are working to return the stolen property to its rightful owners.

If you have been the victim of a robbery recently, you can contact West Jordan Police at (801) 256-2000 to see if they may have your missing items.
