UPDATED: Sandy Police Respond to Reported Carjacking (Photo) - 03/16/23

UPDATE: On 3/15/23 Sandy Police received a report of a vehicle taken at gunpoint at about 4:20 PM from the parking lot of Meinig Park. Initially, the victim reported that a stranger had stolen his gray 2004 Toyota Camry with Oregon license 381NBX. Officers located the vehicle near the intersection of Van Fleet Avenue and Wolf Drive and attempted to stop it near the intersection of Highway 211 and 362nd Drive. The vehicle fled from officers. Due to reckless driving behaviors by the suspect and the high volume of traffic present on the roadway at the time, officers terminated their pursuit of the vehicle. The vehicle was last seen near the intersection of Highway 211 and Judd Road. We now know that the suspect was known to the victim and he has been identified. Based on our investigation to this point, we do not believe this suspect is currently a threat to the citizens of Sandy. This is an active investigation and no additional information will be released to protect the integrity of the investigation.
