Detectives from the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office petitioned for a narcotics search for a residence located at 279 North 150 East in Salina, Sunday. Members of the sheriff’s office, Salina City Police Department and Utah Highway Patrol executed the search warrant at approximately noon.
“While clearing the last bedroom at the end of the trailer, detectives observed a piece of glass on the dresser with a glass pipe and a white crystal-like rock on it,” said Sevier County Sheriff Nate Curtis. “Investigators also found a baggie containing a white crystal-like substance. The substance was weighed and field-tested. The substance showed an approximate weight of 1.01 ounces and the field-test returned positive results for methamphetamine.”
Three subjects were arrested – Larry Thomas, Tim Trujillo and Ellen Brooks, who is also known as Ellen Baxter, according to Sheriff Nate Curtis. Brooks was found to have methamphetamine on her person at the time of the arrest.
During the search of the residence, investigators located two black digital scales with a white powdery residue, which is consistent with the distribution of methamphetamine.
Thomas and Brooks were charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia, said Curtis.
“We were very happy with how this turned out,” Curtis said. He said the bust was the result of agencies working together and sharing information.
“This all happened on Sunday,” Curtis said. “These officers are dedicated.”
