Roosevelt, Ut.- On January 27th, 2024, Cpl Barton did a warrants list and found that 29-year-old Tyler Allison Clark (Bird) had five statewide warrants for her arrest.
Tyler is also on probation with Adult Probation and Parole (AP&P). Cpl Barton arrived at 443 East 400 North and saw Tyler pull into the property and made contact with her. Barton informed Tyler she had five statewide warrants.
Because she is on probation, Cpl Barton contacted her Probation Officer due to the officers entering the house with Tyler's consent; Cpl Barton observed a marijuana bong on the counter. Tyler does have a valid marijuana card, but she is in violation for smoking it out of a bong.
Tyler's Agent spoke with her and informed her that he had explained to her that her smoking out of the bong is still illegal in the state of Utah. Agent Draper told Tyler that he was requesting Cpl Barton to do a compliance check, and she needed to get rid of the marijuana and paraphernalia.
Tyler consented and escorted the officers to her bedroom, where they located THC wax, marijuana in a Ziploc bag, rolling papers, and another bong.
The officers collected the evidence, and during the compliance check, Cpl Barton found two different brands of alcohol in the refrigerator.
Tyler Clark was placed under arrest, and Officer Adams transported her to the Duchesne County Jail, where she was booked in for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of alcohol by an interdicted person, and five statewide warrants.
To the families suffering in the loss of Cpl Cody Barton, please help us provide support. Allow us to be your fortress in a time of immense pain and uncertainty. Help us keep them safe and nourished in their time of grief and suffering as they move toward healing. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
Cpl Barton was probably one of the hardest working Officers in Basin. I wish I would have gotten the chance to meet him. I feel like I know him; I have read, I have no idea how many of his probable cause reports. Those were always written very well, also. The way he did his job, I thought he was a 25-year veteran. He will be missed, that is for sure, and to the family, I am very sorry for your loss.
