PLAIN CITY, Utah –  Weber County Sheriff's deputies arrested three men Wednesday morning in connection with a burglary at a Plain City home.

Shortly after 8:30, a man noticed a suspicious car at his neighbor's house.  When he went to investigate, he discovered the men in the process of burglarizing the home at 2900 N. 4200 W.,  according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office.  The man tackled two of the suspects as they tried to flee out the front door, and was able to subdue one of them as other neighbors came to assist.

When deputies arrived, they took two of the suspects into custody but the third man was still at-large.    Deputies established a perimeter around the neighborhood and conducted an hour-long manhunt.

As deputies searched the area, another citizen reported seeing the suspect running through a field near 2700 N. 4200 W.  Officers engaged in a short foot pursuit with the man, and apprehended him.

The suspects have been identified as Zachariah Dost, 19 years-old, from Ogden, Kaden Shaw, 18 years-old, from Taylorsville, and Tyger Ukena-Berkey, 19 years-old, from Ogden.

All three suspects face multiple charges including felony burglary of a dwelling.  They have been booked into the Weber County jail.   The Sheriff's Office put out a special thanks to the officers from Utah Highway Patrol, as well Pleasant View and Harrisville police departments who responded to help on the case.
