Fruitland, Ut.- On 1/30/2023 at about 7:15 am, Capt. Crowley noticed Nathan Omar Cook at the Big G Convenience store in Fruitland, Utah.
Capt. Crowley has had prior dealings with Nathan and knew who he was by sight. He noticed the vehicle Nathan was in, a small white vehicle driving around the store and the fuel pumps.
Capt. Crowley checked Nathan for warrants and found that he had two no-bail warrants for his arrest out of the 8th District Court. With this information Capt. Crowley stopped Nathan at the Post Office in Fruitland, Utah.
When Capt. Crowley contacted Nathan, advised him of the warrants, and asked him to step out of the vehicle. Nathan then told him he had a job lined up in Provo and wanted to be released.
Upon arrest, Nathan admitted he had some stuff in his coat pocket, and when Capt. Crowley picked up his glove that was taken out of his coat pocket and noticed a small plastic baggy with a green leafy substance in it.
Inside Nathan's coat was a syringe used to inject controlled substances into the human body and a small clear plastic baggy with some white crystal substance. Nathan admitted the green leafy substance was marijuana and the syringe was used with the methamphetamine to shoot up, and that the crystal substance was methamphetamine.
Nathan also had 6 Ibuprofen 800 in a plastic bag inside his coat. Nathan was arrested on the two outstanding warrants for possession of a controlled substance, suspected methamphetamine, possession of suspected marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia and the syringe.
Nathan Omar Cook was ordered to go check in with AP&P but failed to do so, and that is one of the two no-bail warrants.
The current offense is a felony. There is substantial evidence to support the charge, and clear and convincing evidence would constitute a considerable danger to another individual or the community or is likely to flee the jurisdiction of the court if released on bail.
