The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

WOODS CROSS | A Utah man per­suaded his son to sur­ren­der to au­thor­i­ties af­ter rec­og­niz­ing him as a sus­pect in a com­puter store bur­glary while watch­ing a TV news pro­gram, of­fi­cers said.

The two men were eat­ing break­fast Fri­day morn­ing when the fa­ther rec­og­nized his son in sur­veil­lance tapes that po­lice re­leased on the bur­glary, said Woods Cross po­lice De­tec­tive Adam Osoro.

Jeremy Blair, 26, of Kaysville, turned him­self in later Fri­day to the Davis County Sher­iff’s Of­fice, the Stan­dard-ex­am­iner of Og­den and the De­seret News re­ported.

“This case is very unique for a fa­ther to rec­og­nize that his son has a prob­lem,” De­tec­tive Osoro said. “It’s a hard thing to do, but I think ul­ti­mately it’s the best thing for the son, and I think the fa­ther sees that.”
