SALT LAKE CITY — A Kaysville man allegedly has been busy stealing and breaking into cars in multiple counties for months, according to police.

Kaydin Val Andreason, 20, was arrested in Davis County Tuesday for investigation of eight counts of theft, 12 counts of vehicle burglary, two counts of criminal mischief and drug possession. His most recent alleged crime spree dates back to at least April 1, according to a police affidavit.

In April and May, Centerville police responded to 12 vehicle break-ins “involving commercial work trucks being burglarized, where miscellaneous power tools and equipment was stolen,” according to the affidavit.

Andreason would then sell many of those tools on Facebook, the affidavit states.

“Over the course of my investigation, I was able to link Kaydin to numerous stolen vehicles in the south end of Davis County and Salt Lake Valley area,” the arresting officer wrote in his affidavit.

One vehicle used to commit other crimes was stolen from Salt Lake City International Airport, the affidavit states. Andreason was also stopped by Sandy police in May in a stolen GMC, according to the affidavit.

“I have confirmed that there are a total of 13 additional agencies along the Wasatch Front, with active cases for vehicles thefts, vehicle burglaries and thefts, and that are actively looking for Kaydin as their suspect,” the affidavit states.

Andreason has racked up a number of charges in recent months. Since November he has been charged in seven separate cases with a total two counts of theft by receiving stolen property, two counts of theft and receiving a stolen vehicle, all second-degree felonies; two counts of unlawful use of a bank card and drug distribution, both third-degree felonies; possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of burglary tools and theft by receiving stolen property, all class B misdemeanors.
