Cedar City Police Department News

If you've spent any time around North Elementary this week, particularly in the afternoon when school gets out, you would have noticed our officers and volunteers in the area directing traffic. Things were getting so congested on 200 North that the crossing guard couldn't do his job without dodging cars and the kids were at risk. We found parents in their vehicles lining up down 200 North, in the red zone, 30-45 minutes early, to pick up their children and that was causing congestion. We met with the school administration and tried to come up with a solution. It was decided we would shut down 600 West 200 North to northbound traffic during this time to allow the crossing guard to do his job safely and to protect the children. Our hope was that parents picking up their children would stop coming so early. The consequence of this decision was that parents still showed up just as early and are basically double parking on 600 West, blocking the residential driveways and preventing them from getting in and out of their homes during this time. We are committed to making this work so our request is that you not block driveways if you feel like you need to arrive 30-45 minutes early. Also, stay a little left of the parked vehicles so if someone needs to get out, or there is an emergency, we can make those accommodations. It's really about being a good neighbor and taking care of the children. If you don't absolutely have to pick up your child in a vehicle, please consider walking to the school and getting them. I saw many parents doing this today and it makes for a very healthy alternative. Thanks for your patience with this change and let's work together to make it work.

Over the past three weeks or so, the CCPD has been investigating multiple cases of vehicle burglary and residential burglary. The suspects are accused of using stolen credit cards to make purchases in Washington County, Iron County and Utah County. Today, an alert Walmart employee recognized the suspect and called the police. After a short foot chase and search, we made an arrest. We have recovered property we believe to be stolen. We have identified some owners but need help identifying owners for some of the property. There are numerous credit, debit and gift cards, social security cards, a revolver, a couple of nice pair of binoculars, several knives, stereo headphones, just to name a few items. If you live in the area behind the golf course, Lamplight subdivision, Highland Drive area, and have been the victim of an auto burglary in the past month or so we may have your property. Please contact Detective Matt Topham at the police department to check. Officers have arrested a 26 year old male Las Vegas resident named Scott Beckwith. He is currently in our custody and is being cooperative. He could potentially be charged with several counts of Vehicle Burglary, Residential Burglary and Credit Card Fraud. This investigation is still on-going. We have received assistance from the Utah Highway Patrol, SUU Police, Iron County Sheriff's Office, Parowan Police and SUU Aviation. Thanks go out to our Public Safety partners for being willing to help anytime we ask.

We've had lots of people ask about this. Here's the answer straight from the Utah Tax Commission.

The CCPD is looking to fill the position of School Crossing Guard at Iron Springs and Cedar Middle School. Interested individuals please can find an application at www.cedarcity.org and can file it electroncally to employment.cedarcity.org. You can also pick up a hard copy of the application at the front desk at the Cedar City Offices, 10 N Main. Pay is $11.09 per hour. The prior Crossing Guard was able to work both schools as the start and end times are different and he could work it into his schedule.

The CCPD is looking for information regarding a recurring theft from a local cabinet shop. The suspects are seen here, on video provided by the victim, stealing wood from the shop on multiple occassions. The suspects are a man in his 60's and woman, possibly in her 30's. They are seen in this video driving a white, older model minivan. If you happen to know who they are, please contact Officer Condie at the CCPD. 435-586-2956.

Great work Sarge!!!

We have received quite a few more "scam attempt" reports in the last few days. They are a variation of the "jury duty scam" where victims receive a call from a man saying he is "Lieutenant Daniels" with the Iron County Sheriff's Office. The caller states there is a warrant out for missing jury duty. He then attempts to obtain personal identifying information such as social security numbers, bank account information, dates of birth etc. THIS IS A SCAM! The Iron County SO does not have a Lt Daniels on their staff, and they do not conduct business in this manner! Do not give out your information over the phone.

We would like to highlight and congratulate Cedar City Police Department's Employee of the Month for October, Patrol Officer Brennon Peterson. Officer Peterson worked as an Animal Control Officer prior to being hired as a patrol officer this past February. Officer Peterson is always positive, willing to assist anyone in need, and has a remarkable work ethic. He is credited with recently apprehending a fugitive who had fled from law enforcement. Additionally, a pro-active traffic stop by Officer Peterson led to the discovery of large quantities of methamphetamine and marijuana, along with a firearm. Officer Peterson's persistence and dedication to public safety has already had a positive and noticeable impact in our community. We thank him for his example and hard work, and we are fortunate to have him. Congratulations, Officer Peterson!

Another scam alert! Scam artists tried to take advantage of Cedar City Police Lieutenant Keith Millett today while he was at work. They called his cell phone. This one was a "Publisher's Clearing House Sweetpstakes" scam. The caller was very convincing. The suspect had a Middle Eastern accent but spoke very good English. He used the name Michael Rogers. He told Lt Millett that he had won $480,000.00 and congratulated him on his winnings. He gave Lt. Millett a claim number and a call back number. Millett said the caller kept reminding him that this was not a scam and that he was a good Christian person and would never take advantage of anyone. He told him he had a tv film crew waiting nearby and all he had to do was pay the taxes of $1,800.00 and the remaining money would be sent. He asked Millett to stay on the line the entire time so he wouldn't miss any instructions. He asked him to go to the local Wal-Mart and send the money to an address. This was when Millett confronted him and hung up on the suspect. These people will stop at nothing to take advantage of you. They normally prey on older people who are often more trusting. Please, don't fall victim to these scams and remind your parents and grandparents to remain vigilant and to never give out information over the phone. The guiding principle here is "If it sounds too good to be true...it probably is."

Congratulations Coach! We are proud of you, your team and your staff! Good luck this weekend against "that team from up north!"
