Police Log: Suspect arrested with 3 ‘bindles’ of meth; Incident involving sandbags floods a backyard
SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — A report of an adult male being injured after becoming accidentally pinned by a UTV near Franson Lane in Oakley was responded to by Summit County Sheriff Deputies on Tuesday, May 2. The accident occurred during the process of parking the UTV. The male suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was life-flighted to a local hospital.
Deputies made contact with a suspect at Elk Meadows Apartments on Sunday, April 30. The individual provided deputies with a fictitious name leading to the use of a biometric machine that revealed the true identity of the suspect. The suspect was taken into custody. A search revealed three bindles, a small envelope created by folding a square piece of paper, allowing for powdered drugs to be carried without using tape or glue, of methamphetamines. The suspect allegedly resisted arrest when being taken into custody and was put on to the ground and secured. There were no injuries sustained.
Incident Involving Sandbags
Sometime during the night between April 29 and 30, sandbags were placed in front of the drainage in order to divert runoff from going down a culvert on the south side of Old Ranch Road. As a result, water went into the backyards of nearby homes on Willowcreek Drive, causing one backyard to become flooded. Deputies do not believe the sandbags were placed for a malicious reason but rather the possibility of protecting their own property from flooding. The individual who placed the bags is unknown. In the shift report, deputies were advised to check on the location while on patrol as the sandbags were still there and could be replaced in front of the drainage.
A complainant reported to Summit County Sheriff’s Department that his vehicle was burglarized during the night of April 29 at around 8 p.m. The doors were unlocked. The next morning at around 8 a.m., the complainant noticed his wallet and a pair of sunglasses were missing. There were charges to the complainant’s bank card completed throughout the night at a 711 in Taylorsville and a Walmart in Salt Lake City. There was no camera footage of the incident. The case has been forwarded to investigations.
