MILLCREEK, Utah – Officers took two suspects to the cleaners after they allegedly tried to clean out a few businesses in Millcreek overnight.
A lack of criminal common sense allowed police to quickly catch up to the suspects.
Authorities were called about a suspect who flashed a gun and demanded money at a Check City on 3300 S. at about 10 p.m.
Officers said a man matching that suspect’s description then went to a smoke shop on 3300 S. and stole cash and cigarettes.
Police said the suspect was seen leaving in a dark sedan.
Officers spotted a dark sedan with the matching licence plate number in a car wash soon after.
Since it was pouring rain, police said they found it odd and decided to investigate.
They found the two suspects, 41-year-old Marc Kammerman and 28-year-old Manmeet Bhatia, and arrested them for suspicion of armed robbery.
Officials said the men could face felony aggravated robbery charges.
