Additional charges have been filed against a Sandy veterinarian already serving a 60-day jail term for breaking into an a Alta animal clinic in April.
Kim Calvin Hazen, 41, has been charged with burglary, a third-degree felony, and theft, a class B misdemeanor, in the March 20 break-in at Brookside Animal Hospital, 7220 S. 1300 West. A $10,000 warrant has been issued for his arrest.Hospital employees told police that someone had broken into the building and taken some drugs, the charges state. Hazen later confessed to West Jordan police detective C. Hoffman that he had "entered the animal hospital," and that he "did take some drugs," according to court documents.
In May Hazen was sentenced to 355 days in jail after he pleading guilty to attempted burglary of a building, a class A misdemeanor, in connection with the April 7 break-in at the Alta Veterinary Hospital. All but 60 days of the sentence were suspended.
Meanwhile, Hazen is scheduled for sentencing July 23 in 2nd District Court after pleading guilty to two counts of burglary, a third-degree felony, in two similar Ogden cases. Prosecutors there dismissed one count of theft, a third-degree felony, and one count of criminal mischief, a class A misdemeanor, according to court records.
Hazen is also a key witness in the prosecution of Leo Taylor, 70, a popular West Jordan veterinarian who is heading to trial for allegedly practicing on a suspended license.
