Off-duty but nonetheless vigilant, a Salt Lake City police officer's watchfulness led to the arrest of a suspected husband-wife burglary team.
Police said the officer spotted the couple at 7:22 p.m. Sunday in the 900 block of West Signora Drive (about 700 North). The male was carrying a backpack as he walked through the neighborhood, pausing to look into the yards of area residences.
The officer called in a report and continued to observe the suspect as he entered the yard of an abandoned home. The suspect then saw the officer and allegedly confronted him with a knife and threats.
