Provo police say they've busted two alleged jewel thieves after a suspected six-month-long crime spree.
Police arrested a 26-year-old man and a 22-year-old man this week in connection with the burglaries of nine homes in southwestern Provo. Police suspect the two stole about $30,000 worth of property in all, including $600 worth of loose change found in the older suspect's home, said Lt. Mathew Siufanua.
On Feb. 15, an officer and his police dog responded to a burglary in progress near 700 S. 1600 West. The dog followed the suspect's footprints to the 26-year-old's back door.
