Through further investigation St. George police detectives charged Mr. Wilde with eight other counts of residential burglary and one count of business burglary. St George police detectives are looking at the possibility of additional charges against Mr. Wilde. There has been no property recovered in any of these cases, however St George police detectives are still actively working these cases. We ask that citizens do not contact St George Police regarding property. Detectives will be contacting possible victims in regards to these cases.
This arrest is an excellent example of the police and citizens working together. The St George Police Department is grateful to concerned citizens who took the time to report suspicious behavior. The St George Police Department supports the statement made by Mayor Dan McArthur “If you see something, say something”.
At this time Mr. Wilde is not a suspect in the residential burglary/assault that occurred earlier this week on 1000 E. That investigation is still active and Detectives are currently working that investigation.
The St George Police Department would also like to remind citizens to take precautions which could prevent them from becoming a victim of a crime. Remember to lock your doors, put away valuables, write down serial numbers, and photograph your jewelry and other valuables.
