LAYTON — Two people accused of binding an elderly Layton woman with duct tape and taking credit cards, medication and other valuables from her home are awaiting extradition from a Knoxville, Tenn., jail.

Sarah Eversten, 31, of Salt Lake City and Hunter Haynes, 30, originally from Knoxville, were taken into custody Thursday morning and booked into jail on one count each of aggravated burglary, second-degree felony theft and third-degree felony unlawful acquisition, possession or transfer of a credit card and unlawful use of a credit card, according to Layton Police Lt. Lyman Travis.

The victim  hired the two about a week and a half prior to the April 11 burglary to clean and do small jobs around her house, police said.

On April 11, the victim was awakened by multiple people in her bedroom, Lyman said.

The couple allegedly bound the victim with duct tape and burglarized her home. After the suspects left, the woman was able to free herself and call out to her neighbors who came to her aid, Lyman said. The woman suffered minor bruising from the duct tape.

The suspects allegedly attempted several transactions with the victim's credit cards, and were successful in making some cash withdrawals.

The investigation led police to determine the couple were staying at a hotel in Knoxville. Arrests warrants were obtained and law enforcement in Knoxville took the suspects into custody.
