Dad persuades son to turn himself in
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.”
