SHARE Four charged with pre-holiday turkey theft

A group of robbers made off with a Thanksgiving turkey earlier this week, according to charges filed in 3rd District Court.

Three men and a juvenile were charged Wednesday with counts ranging from aggravated robbery to unlawful possession of someone's identification.

According to court documents, the suspects were armed with a sword and a firearm when they robbed two men early Tuesday morning. The robbers took cell phones, a purse, a wallet, bank cards, IDs and a frozen holiday turkey, according to the charges.

The suspects were arrested after the victims were able to give a partial license plate number to Salt Lake County sheriff's deputies.
