Whiterocks, Ut. - On 11/21/23, Agent Simper and Agent Watkins were working their assignments with the Uintah & Ouray Safe Trails Task Force when they received information from Vernal AP&P agents that 32-year-old KC Wayne North was a fugitive on parole.
A board of pardons warrant had been issued for KC, and they advised they had information placing KC at an address of 12000 N 5500 E, Whiterocks, Ut. Or the Trujillo residence. The agents have been watching this residence for some time.
The agents saw lights on inside the trailer behind the home. They walked to the trailers to make contact with the person inside. The door opened, and a male stepped down out of the trailer. Agent Simper recognized the man as KC North.
KC started to turn away, and Agent Simper grabbed his arm, telling him he was under arrest. KC was detained, and he stated he was going to catch new charges as he had "blues" (Fentanyl Pills) in his pocket.
A search of KC's person turned up a black key box with a tooter (gray pen tube) that was melted, pieces of tin foil, and several Fentanyl pills.
KC was read his Miranda Rights and admitted to smoking one of the Fentanyl pills prior to his arrest. KC was transported to the Uintah County Jail, where he was booked on possession of a controlled substance, a third-degree felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor B, and the two warrants.
