Ogden Police have arrested a 19-year-old who allegedly shot a man and stole his cell phone a month ago. On June 12, the victim – whose name has not been released – was found dead on the street at 100 Patterson Street. He had been shot twice and his cell phone was gone.
According to a probable cause statement, police received a tip on July 7 that identified a 19-year-old man as the shooter. The suspect was arrested and told police that he and another person saw the victim walking down the street and decided to rob him. The suspect also told police he shot the victim and took his phone.
According to a probable cause statement, the suspect’s phone’s location history “reflected the journey of the victim’s phone from the moment it was taken.” The suspect told police he later destroyed the victim’s phone. He also told police he was using methamphetamine when he killed the victim.
The 19-year-old was booked into the Weber County Jail on investigations into aggravated murder, aggravated robbery, obstruction of justice and possession and use of a gun by a restricted person. He is being held without bail.
The Salt Lake Tribune generally does not name a suspect until he has been charged with a crime.
