A pair of people hired to clean a Layton home have been arrested for later breaking into the house, tying up the homeowner and escaping to Tennessee with a stash of valuables.
The man and woman, both in their 30s, were hired by an elderly woman to clean the house in the 700 North block of 1025 East in late March or early April, police say. The duo performed a variety of small tasks and left.
But in the early hours of April 11, the man and woman sneaked back into the house. Police say the elderly woman woke up to see two people in her bedroom and was subsequently bound with duct tape. The man and woman then rummaged through the house before escaping with credit cards, medication and other valuables, according to police.
