FARMINGTON, Utah — A man recently booked into the Davis County Jail is facing several charges, including the theft of numerous vehicles from homes in Bountiful.

Centerville Police arrested Kaydin Andreason, 20, on Tuesday after a lengthy investigation that began in May.

According to the probable cause statement obtained by Fox 13, it all began on May 7th when a homeowner in Bountiful reported to Unified Police that their home had been burglarized, with their two vehicles ransacked and a Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV) missing.

Little over a week later, when another suspect was arrested in a different stolen vehicle in Salt Lake City, he reported that he had obtained the vehicle from Andreason, providing photos of a stolen UTV that matched the description of the UTV stolen from the Bountiful home. The UTV was later recovered from Salt Lake City 11 days later.

Two weeks after that, another homeowner in Bountiful reported to Bountiful Police that their 2018 BMW SUV had been stolen from their attached garage. The same day, Unified Police informed Bountiful Police that a source reported that Andreason was in possession of the stolen BMW. The vehicle was later found in West Valley, thanks to the vehicle’s GPS system.

Ten days after the BMW was recovered, officers tracked Andreason to a stolen camp trailer on a dirt road in western Salt Lake City, with several other stolen vehicles. Andreason admitted to the robberies upon being taken into custody.

He later told officers that he was present at both Bountiful homes when another individual had stolen both the UTV and the BMW. He also provided the location to several stolen trailers, which police later recovered.

Andreason is currently held without bail and faces a total of 24 charges, including vehicle burglary, theft by receiving stolen property, and criminal mischief.
