FARMINGTON — Two people have been extradited from Tennessee and are facing felony charges after police say they bound a Layton woman, robbed her and then fled last month.
Sarah Evertsen, 31, and Hunter Daniel Haynes, 30, were booked into the Davis County Jail on Friday after being extradited from Knoxville, Tenn., where police there found them in a hotel.
They are each being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Both are charged with one count of first-degree felony aggravated burglary, one second-degree felony count of theft, and two third-degree felony counts of illegally possessing and using a financial transaction card.
The pair were hired by an elderly Layton woman to do some work around her home. On April 11, they allegedly bound the woman with duct tape and stole her credit cards, medication and other valuables, police said in a press release.
The woman managed to escape and call neighbors for help.
Layton police had a lead the pair may have fled to Knoxville, and asked authorities there to help. Knoxville police arrested the two and held them.
They had allegedly used the woman’s credit cards to make some purchases.
