"This happened so fast with [Phillips], the investigation and Davis County deputies," said Jefferson County Sheriff Gregg Morton. "They all went nuts on this and got it solved so fast. The cooperation between the three counties was awesome."
While it's difficult to pin down which suspect allegedly stole which vehicle, Phillips said all will be charged as conspirators.
"Even if they weren't the exact one who took the vehicle, they will be charged with conspiracy because they all acted together and agreed to committing the crime," Phillips said.
Davis previously told the Courier that Harland, 17, could be tried as an adult for the felony charge. Phillips said that will have to be determined by a juvenile judge.
While a vehicle was stolen from the parking lot behind the Courier on Monday, Phillips said law enforcement doesn't believe it was related to the series of car thefts allegedly completed by the four individuals in custody. The vehicle was eventually recovered in the 1000 block of Center Avenue Monday night in the parking lot on the visitors' side of Schafer Stadium.
