PROVO — Most of the $1 million in property taken from a Hobble Creek Canyon home believed to be owned by Nu Skin Enterprises founder Nedra Roney has been recovered.

"Most, if not all, of the property has been returned to the victim's home in Jackson Hole, Wyo," said Utah County Sheriff Sgt. Dennis Harris.

There have been no arrests in the case.

"The people that we were looking at before still remain people of interest to the sheriff's office," Harris said. Harris declined to confirm that Roney is the victim.

On Aug. 8, two men hired as movers relocated items from a home in Jackson Hole to Springville.

The two men drove two vans from Wyoming to Utah with common household items, which they were supposed to move into the garage of the Hobble Creek residence.

Police said the men went into the home unauthorized. They loitered in parts of the home, then left the residence.

A short time later, according to police, the victim discovered items were missing from the home. Police believe the items reportedly stolen were already in the house and were not part of the cargo the men unloaded from the vans

Harris said the jewelry was returned to the victim's home Tuesday in Jackson Hole, Wyo. He declined to release any more details about how it was discovered there.

Utah County officials are still working with law enforcement in Wyoming to locate and interview people of interest, Harris said.
