Jury Duty scammers claim more victims

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — A man reported he received a phone call from someone claiming to be the “Summit County Sheriff,” saying he had missed jury duty and now had three open cases on his record. The unknown caller said there was a $375 per case bond for not showing up to jury duty and that the man would be arrested if the fines were not paid via Zelle that day.

In total, the man paid $847 to the Zelle account. Summit County Sheriff’s Department informed the complainant that this was a scam. There are currently no suspects in the case.

Possession of meth

A Summit County Sheriff’s Deputy traffic stop led to a K9 search of the vehicle for narcotics. The K9’s search turned up a baggie of methamphetamine inside a backpack. The suspect, a 43-year-old man from Vernal, was arrested and booked into Summit County Jail. He is now facing a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Stolen Vehicle Recovered

Summit County Sheriff Deputies were alerted to what appeared to be an abandoned vehicle. The white Nissan Rouge had been parked on the side of the road for four days before deputies arrived on the scene. The car was found to match the description of a vehicle stolen earlier in the week.

The owner of the vehicle was contacted and picked up the stolen SUV. Further investigation included talking with neighbors in the area and the grounds managers at Rockport Estates, asking them to forward any available surveillance video to the investigations team.

Retail Theft and Intoxication

A 21-year-old Park City woman was detained by Walmart asset protection after the woman was reported to have attempted to walk out of the store without paying for several items. Deputies arrived on the scene and conducted an interview where the woman admitted to walking out with the items and drinking earlier in the afternoon.

The odor of alcohol could be smelled on her person. The woman was arrested for intoxication and retail theft by deputies. She was then booked into Jail without incident.
