SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — Two women have been arrested for their alleged involvement in the theft of 100 commercial-grade televisions in Salt Lake City.
Salt Lake City police officers responded to a storage facility in the 5200 West 1500 South area to investigate a burglary around 10:16 a.m. on Jan. 16, a news release said.
During their investigation, they learned that over 100 commercial-grade televisions worth approximately $250,000 had been stolen.
Detectives then tracked down two women, Krystal Craig and Emelie Rook, both 36, who were trying to sell some of the stolen televisions.
Both women were arrested and incarcerated in the Salt Lake County Jail for theft by deception and theft for possession of stolen property.
Police were able to recover some of the televisions but are still trying to recover the rest.
According to the police, it is believed that many televisions are offered for sale online. These televisions are easily identifiable because they are labeled as “hospitality, commercial grade”.

People who knowingly buy or receive stolen goods can be arrested and charged with criminal charges.
