Police have recovered the car stolen from Salt Lake City anchor Kerri Cronk during a home invasion.
According to Deseret News, Brandon Woodford, was pulled over after police spotted him driving Cronk’s Honda Pilot. He was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for “investigation of being in possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of drug paraphernalia.”
Woodford told police that he was aware the car was stolen, according to a jail report. A passenger who was also in the vehicle was interviewed by police and released.
The Honda was stolen Monday in Millcreek from the house where Cronk and her family live. A woman walked into the home holding a pry tool, confronted Cronk’s husband and son and told them she was being chased, according to Unified police.
“She demanded their car keys and threatened to hit them if they did not comply,” according to a prepared statement from the department.
No one was injured.
The investigation into how Woodford allegedly came to be in possession of the car was ongoing Wednesday. Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said detectives had good leads into identifying the woman who took the vehicle.
He said investigators believe Cronk’s house was targeted at random.
