Duchesne Co Ut.- On 9/11/23, at approximately noon, Deputy Borrelli was dispatched to a fraud case that occurred. The Deputy contacted the complainant by phone, and he stated a company card provided by Nathan had been used without permission.

The complainant stated Nathan informed him he didn't know about the transactions and said the company card was in the vehicle assigned to the card. When the complainant looked over the charges provided by Nathan, he noticed the name on the transactions was his son, 23-year-old Brayden Frank Street.

The complainant stated while working, his son Brayden would help and was told to put gas in the truck using the card during a trip to the landfill. The complainant believes Brayden possibly took a photograph of the card and used the information to make other purchases.

The Sinclair Gas Station was able to provide Nathan with the transactions. During July and August, there were 12 transactions: 10 to the Gateway Sinclair in Duchesne with a total of $591.79, 1 at the Myton Ute Petroleum for $42.19, and 1 at Swaseys Place in Altamont for $6.07. The total amount of unauthorized transactions was $640.05. Nathan was informed by Sinclair the transactions were made using the Sinclair App from a phone.


The app requires making an account with a name, phone number, and email. The card information is then manually entered. The information on the account using the card has Brayden's name, phone number, and email listed for the owner.

On 9/24/23, Deputy Tweeks made contact with Brayden at his home. The Deputy was asked to place Brayden into custody and transport him to the Duchesne County Jail.

At 10:00 p.m., Deputy Borrelli arrived at the jail and read Brayden his Miranda Rights to be interviewed.

Brayden stated he did have the phone information on his phone but only used it when Nathan authorized it. He said he last used the card when he put $20 in his girlfriend's car or Cody's work truck. He was unsure which vehicle.

Bryaden was booked into the Duchesne County Jail for unlawful acquire/possess/transfer of a financial card and theft of $500 or more.
