Rifles & SWAT Body Armor Taken After Undercover SWAT Car Burglary

(HERBER CITY, Utah) -- An undercover SWAT car was burglarized in Herber City, Utah, according to local police.

The car was just one of three that was either burglarized or stolen in the area. While the car wasn't stolen, the thieves managed to take numerous police items, including an AR-15 rifle, a pistol, a shotgun and SWAT body armor and uniforms.

"These are brazen criminals; we would like to stop [them] quickly. It's important to find them and get the equipment back in the right hands," Heber City Police Department Lt. Jason Bradley said in a statement.

Police haven't said if the car was targeted because it was a SWAT vehicle, but Public Information Officer Xela Thomas said the car had "minimal police decals" and wasn't in use at the time of the burglary.

Police did not describe the car, since they hope to use it in future operations, but Thomas said it was generic and didn't have any special features such as armored siding.

Another car four houses down from the SWAT vehicle was also burglarized and a third was stolen.

Anyone with information can call the police department at 435-654-1411.

Man Arrested in Kidnapping, Robbery Case

(SALT LAKE CITY) -- Salt Lake Police arrested a 34-year-old man after he allegedly kidnapped and robbed another man early Friday.

Officers were at 400 S. 200 W. during a traffic stop just after 12 a.m. when a car pulled up and stopped behind them. The driver jumped out and ran to police, telling them he was being kidnapped by another man, who was still in the vehicle.

The officers handcuffed the suspect while they investigated, and learned the victim was parked and on his cell phone when Damon Greenberry opened the passenger side door and entered the car. Greenberry allegedly said he had a handgun and told the victim to drive, according to officials. The victim was also forced to withdraw money from a nearby ATM.

Greenberry was booked for robbery, kidnapping, and other charges. No injuries were reported.

Ogden Woman Deported on Charges of Killing Her Husband 

(SALT LAKE CITY) -- Officials deported an Ogden woman to El Salvador on Wednesday after accusations that she plotted the murder of her estranged American husband.

Nuri Liseth Aquino-Torres (Brown) was wanted by Salvadoran authorities for her alleged role in the 2013 death.

Officials say Aquino-Torres, 28, orchestrated the murder of 53-year-old Michael James, Brown, a U.S. Army veteran from Three Oaks, Michigan.

Salt Lake City agents located and arrested the suspect at her Ogden home in March, followed by an order of removal by an immigration judge in July.

“ICE has teams dedicated to locating and arresting aliens wanted for prosecution in foreign countries,” said Thomas Feeley, field officer director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Salt Lake City. “Foreign fugitives are mistaken if they believe they can hide in the U.S. to escape justice in their home countries.”
