Vernal, Ut.- On 1/14/23, Sergeant Watkins ran a routine license plate check on a vehicle that showed it belonged to Trevor Dee Staley. Dispatched said the vehicle had no insurance, and Trevor had a suspended driver's license and an active warrant for his arrest.

A traffic stop was conducted at 1450 West Main Street, and Trevor was the only occupant in the vehicle.

Sergeant Watkins deployed his K9 Duga to do a free-air narcotic sniff around the vehicle. Duga indicated the odor of illegal narcotics in the rear driver's side door area. K9 Duga was then sent inside the vehicle and alerted in the area of the driver's seat.

In search of Trevor's vehicle, Sergeant Watkins found a large quantity of empty baggies between the driver's seat and the center console.

Trevor was arrested, and Sergeant Watkins talked to him about taking narcotics inside the jail. Trevor told him he didn't have any drugs on him. Trevor was then taken to the Uintah County Jail.

At the jail, during a search of Trevor's person, they found 31 grams of methamphetamine down his pants and a syringe he used to inject the meth.

With this amount of meth and the packaging material, Sergeant Watkins's opinion is that Trevor Staley was possessing this substance with the intent to distribute it. This amount of meth is not for personal use, and Trevor was issued his Miranda Rights. He requested an attorney, and no more questions were asked.

Trevor Dee Staley was booked into jail for possessing meth with the intent to distribute, drug paraphernalia for the syringe and baggies, operating a motor vehicle with no insurance, driving on a suspended license, and bringing contraband/narcotics inside of a jail facility.
