SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — A significant police presence was observed today at the Sinclair Gas Station in Silver Summit due to the presence of suspects in an ongoing counterfeit money investigation. The incident began when the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call at the Bell’s Sinclair gas station on Silver Creek Road in Park City around 2:20 p.m. on May 7.

Authorities discovered an adult male hiding in an RV trailer parked on the premises. Multiple law enforcement agencies were called in to assist the Summit County Sheriff’s deputies in managing the situation.

Orders to exit the camper were given, and a female complied and came out. The female refused to say if there was anyone else in the camper. The four subjects in the vehicle were eventually taken into custody for possession of methamphetamine and various other charges.

According to Summit County Sheriff’s Chief Kacey Bates, the situation is stable. Bates explained that no monetary transaction took place, but a counterfeit money suspect was in a fifth-wheel trailer outside of the gas station and was not surrendering.

Officers negotiated with the suspect via telephone and were able to take them into custody.
