Man arrested in Bountiful robbery
BOUNTIFUL—Police have arrested a Bountiful man who allegedly robbed the America First Credit Union inside Dick’s Market in December.
Parker James Kent was booked into the Davis County Jail on one count of robbery Jan. 17. According to police, Kent was identified by an anonymous source through video surveillance footage released by the department.
Kent was scheduled for an initial court appearance Jan. 26.
Men implicated in Bountiful fire
BOUNTIFUL—Charges have been filed accusing two men of causing the wildfire that burned near a subdivision in the foothills of Bountiful last summer.
Federal prosecutors filed misdemeanor charges against Bountiful resident Jayson Ross Orvis, 48, and James Troy Golden, 41, of Salt Lake City. Both men are charged with one count of causing and failing to control a fire that damaged a national forest.
The blaze began Aug. 29 and allegedly started on Orvis’ property and spread to land in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. According to the Forest Service it burned within about a quarter of a mile of the Summerwood development.
The charges were filed Jan. 23 in U.S. District Court. Orvis was also charged with an additional four counts for allegedly putting road and structure improvements – a shooting pavilion, a rail for target shooting, a tent and a road – on National Forest Service land without authorization.
Charges dropped against WX coach
FARMINGTON—Prosecutors have dropped the felony charges against Trevor J. Amicone, a former baseball coach at Woods Cross High School after receiving additional evidence.
According to charges filed last February, Amicone was accused of showing pornographic images and videos to three teens during the school year in 2015-2016.
Last week, the Davis County prosecutors dismissed the three charges of dealing in harmful materials to a minor by an adult, stating that through the investigation and progression of the case it became clear to staff that there was “not a reasonable probability of conviction at trial.”
Amicone was the Woods Cross baseball coach since the 2015 season and taught U.S. History at the school.
