            On the morning of January 29, 2013, deputies with the Millard County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a call of a suspicious person near State Road 257 in the Clear Lake area. The deputies found Steven Rex Harris, age 51, of Delta with his car stuck in the snow. Harris claimed to be checking bob cat traps. The deputies had no reason to hold him at that time. They helped Harris get his car out of the snow and he went on his way.


            After he left the area, the deputies checked the area for signs of problems. They found evidence of a large wire theft from the Union Pacific Rail Road signal line which runs parallel to the rail road tracks in the area. Evidence was also located that linked Harris to the theft.  

            The case was presented to the Millard County Attorney’s Office and charges of Theft, a third degree felony and Criminal Mischief, a second degree felony were filed. An arrest warrant was obtained from the Fourth District Court.


            On February 3, 2013, deputies learned that Harris was in a home in Delta. Millard County Sheriff’s deputies along with Adult Probation and Parole went to that home and arrested Harris on the warrant.


Safe Tip

Con-artists are not always easy to spot. Smart, extremely persuasive, and aggressive, they invade your home through the telephone and the mail, advertise in reputable newspapers and magazines, and come to your door. Most people think they’re too smart to fall for a scam. But con artists rob all kinds of people from investment counselors and doctors to teenagers and elderly widows of billions every year. It’s up to you to say NO. Use common sense and learn about old and new scams.
