Women claim to be ‘agents,’ steal W. Salt Lake City man’s car

First Published Jul 28 2014 01:02 pm • Last Updated Jul 28 2014 11:11 pm

Two women claiming to be law enforcement officers duped a pair of west Salt Lake City men before driving off in a car belonging to one of them.

Salt Lake Police Sgt. Robin Heiden said the men were approached by the women at 962 W. 200 South about 9 p.m. Sunday. After claiming to be "agents," the women ordered the men to sit on the curb, saying that uniformed police were on the way to the scene.

Meantime, the women — one a Latina about 30 years old, heavily built, with black hair and wearing a blue shirt and blue Capri-style pants, and the other a white woman of undetermined age, thin, with red hair and wearing a blue shirt and black shorts — took one male’s wallet and keys, then drove off in his car.

Heiden said it was unknown whether the women were implying they specifically were immigration agents, or from some other law enforcement entity.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call SLCPD at 801-799-3000. Tipsters also can provide information anonymously by texting TIPSLCPD to 274637.
