Police say 25-year-old Alexandro Stefan and Ionela Stefan, 20, picked up one of the devices and were arrested. Police are still looking for two more people, including the man caught on camera at the bank in Orem.

When the seller met the man, Orem police checked and discovered the vehicle had more than 200,000 miles on it, according to police. The seller got a citation and was referred to the state Motor Vehicle Division.

No charges in carjack shooting

The man who shot and killed another man who was reportedly trying to carjack a woman at the Orem Macey’s will not face charges, the Utah County attorney has announced. The man who shot 26-year-old Taulagi V. Matafeo — he had a concealed carry permit — reportedly told police that he heard a woman screaming and saw her fighting with Matafeo inside an SUV. He showed his gun, according to police, and Matafeo got out of the car, lunged for the weapon and the man shot him.

At the time of the shooting police were searching for Matafeo in connection with a fight and stolen truck.
