Roosevelt, Ut.- On 8/2/23, Cpl. Barton was patrolling on Main Street when he saw a male and a female run out into traffic and made one vehicle hit the brakes, coming to a stop.
Cpl. Barton made contact with the two, and the female was identified as 18-year-old Raylee Ann Perry. Barton showed them where the crosswalk was and told them they needed to use it. They were asked for their ID, and they both said they had no ID on them.
Their names and birth dates were run through dispatch, and Raylee was asked if she had anything on her person because she kept putting her hands into her pockets. Raylee said no.
Raylee was asked to empty her pockets, and the Cpl observed a tobacco vape pen and then asked how old she was. Raylee stated she was 18.
Raylee put the vape pen back into her pocket, and Barton asked her to take it out. She wouldn’t and began stepping back while being told several times to stop, but she refused a direct order.
Cpl. Barton attempted to detain Raylee, and she began to resist and continued while being told to stop. Barton was able to get control of Raylee and placed her under arrest.
While searching Raylee, the tobacco vape pen and a meth pipe with a testable amount of meth were inside the pipe.
Raylee was transported to the Duchesne County Jail and booked in for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of tobacco, and resisting arrest.
On 8/9/23, Cpl. Barton was dispatched to a suspicious incident at the Frontier Grill regarding an adult male smoking with what appeared to be two juvenile females.
When Barton arrived, he only saw one female and one male. He made contact with the male, and Detective Adams made contact with the female, who was identified as 18-year-old Raylee Ann Perry.
The unidentified male was placed under arrest.
The Officers were aware of Raylee being 18 due to recent involvement with her. Raylee was asked if she would speak with the Detective and let him search her property. Raylee agreed.
Detective Adams found meth, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and tobacco in Raylee's bag. There were also some pills in a plastic bag, later identified as Adderall, for which she didn't have a prescription.
Raylee was arrested, transported to the UBMC, medically cleared, and then transported to the Duchesne County Jail.
