NORTH SALT LAKE -- Three men are facing charges following a home invasion in North Salt Lake.
Andrew Crowe, 43, of Price, AJ Robert Ford, 28, of Price, and Jarrod Anthony Baty, 30, of Salt Lake City, were arrested within minutes after the home invasion Thursday, said North Salt Lake Police Lt. Troy Johnson.
The three showed up at a house at 11:55 p.m. Thursday and pointed a gun at the occupants, Johnson said.
After Crowe, Ford and Baty entered the home, one of them punched an occupant and herded all four home occupants into the kitchen.
Meanwhile, the other two men took a rifle and electronic equipment out of the house, Johnson said.
Within a few blocks, a police car pulled them over for a traffic violation. While running the information through dispatch, a call came out about the burglary. The officer recognized the items in the truck's bed as those items listed as stolen, Johnson said.
"It was a good catch on the officer's part," Johnson said.
Officers are still investigating why the men chose that home to burglarize.
The gun turned out to be an air-soft pistol, Johnson said.
The three men were booked into Davis County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault, theft and burglary.
The Davis County Attorney's Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges.
