Man pleads not guilty to robbery
FARMINGTON — Robert Stephen Gibbs, accused of robbing the Layton Dollar Tree has pleaded not guilty.
Gibbs, 21, was charged with first-degree felony aggravated robbery, after police say he robbed the store on Feb. 2.
Gibbs was pulled over by Layton police on traffic violations minutes after the robbery occurred.
It was then officers noticed that he fit the description of the Dollar Tree robbery suspect.
They found a bag from the store in Gibbs’ car with items matching those the suspect had purchased just prior to showing the cashier a gun and demanding money.
Officers also found an airsoft gun in the car.
The store’s clerk identified Gibbs as the man who had robbed the store.
Gibbs will be back in court on March 28.
Farmington talent show on March 5
FARMINGTON — It’s time to come see the brightest stars the city has to offer.
The second annual Farmington’s Got Talent competition is set for March 5 at 7 p.m. in the Community Arts Center (120 S.

The event will be hosted by Arielle Simpson, the current Miss Farmington.
In addition to highlighting the different performers, Simpson will also use the time to highlight her platform of breast cancer awareness (the issue she’s focused on during her reign as Miss Farmington) and raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network.
Tickets for the competition are $5, and can be purchased either at the Parks and Recreation office or at the door the night of the event. For ticket details or more information, please call 801-451-0953.
