Two men, including a former Weber State University football player, were arrested Wednesday for allegedly breaking into a Kneaders Bakery and committing several car burglaries in Highland.
According to a police report, Tevin Calhoun, 22, and Siamani Harris, 20, broke into the Kneaders in Lehi at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. They allegedly cut the lock on an outside power box and turned off the breakers to the building before smashing a restaurant window. They then allegedly stole a small safe, an iPad mini, several deposit slips and keys to safes before fleeing the building.
Officers caught up to the pair just south of the restaurant and found the safe on the front passenger floor board of their car, according to the report. After securing a warrant to search the vehicle, officers allegedly found several identification cards and transaction cards that had been stolen during burglaries in Highland. Police also reportedly found a cut lock and bolt cutters in the car.
According to police, several vehicles were burglarized Aug. 18 in the same area in Highland. During the burglaries, two handguns, credit cards and other items were taken from the cars.
Calhoun and Harris were allegedly later seen on surveillance video using one of the financial cards at an American Fork business.
Calhoun and Harris were arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail on felony charges of burglary, theft of a firearm, unlawful possession of a financial card, possession of another's ID, criminal mischief and several misdemeanors.
According to the Weber State University website, Harris played football for the university in 2012. Various media reports show he was ruled academically ineligible for several games in the 2013 season, along with several other players, due to an NCAA investigation into possible academic fraud.
