Myton, Ut.- On 1/14/23, Officer Kearney was dispatched to the Myton Ute Petroleum of a report that an employee found drug paraphernalia.
The Officer spoke with the employee, who informed him that the man had been in the bathroom for a long time and suspected he was doing drugs. The employee told Officer Kearney the man was now on the east side of the store leaning over, stumbling around, and acting like he was high on drugs.
Officer Kearney went to the east side of the store and confronted the man who provided him his name as Sean Harrison Keppers.
Central Dispatch ran Sean's name, and they returned that he had three no-bail warrants out of 8th District Court Duchesne and one warrant out of 7th District Court Moab. While Officer Kearney was gathering this information from Dispatch, Sean decided to run from the Officer. He shouted, "stop, police!" three times before Sean finally stopped running.
Sean was placed under arrest for his warrants.
Before searching Sean Officer Kearney asked him if he had any drugs or anything dangerous on him, Sean said he did have some needles in his front coat pocket and some cotton with the needles. Kearney asked what cotton was. Sean replied, heroin. Sean had ten needles in his front pocket along with the heroin. Only three of the ten needles had lids on them.
Sean Keppers was transported to the Duchesne County Jail.
