A tipster who recognized a security camera photo circulated by Layton police led detectives to an arrest and alleged confession in a series of Davis County convenience store robberies.
Layton police Lt. Shawn Horton said Friday that a 36-year-old Kaysville man was taken into custody late Thursday afternoon. During questioning, he allegedly confessed not only to holdups of the same Layton Sinclair convenience store on Oct. 8 and 9, but also said he had committed three more robberies in the Bountiful area since May.
The suspect was booked into the Davis County Jail on suspicion of five first-degree felony counts of aggravated robbery. He remained behind bars Friday in lieu of $30,000 bail.
