MILLCREEK, Utah, Sept. 5, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A suspect has been arrested after the armed burglary of a Millcreek home.

According to an arrest fact sheet from the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office, a man broke into the home, near 3300 South and 1300 East, on Aug. 30, and was confronted by a resident. The suspect pointed a rifle at the resident and demanded money, the fact sheet says.

The suspect then left the residence and took a 2016 Ford Escape, the statement says.

The Ford was spotted a short time later in the parking lot of a nearby Home Depot, where it had been parked after being involved a wreck.

Gaisford was arrested by Unified Police officers, and is facing two charges of aggravated burglary, a second-degree felony, and one count of receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle, a second-degree felony.
