Whiterocks, Ut.- On 5/28/23, a person called BIA dispatch saying a man was parked at the Whiterocks Pavilion and had been there for a long time.
Deputy Helms was dispatched to assist BIA Officer Foster with a non-tribal male with drugs. Officer Foster identified the man as 47-year-old Jerod Authur Young, who was sitting in the driver's seat after making contact with him.
Foster advised Helms that Jerod kept moving his hands between his legs, acting like he was trying to conceal something while sitting in his vehicle. When Officer Foster asked Jerod to exit the vehicle, he noticed a clear plastic baggie on the driver's side floorboard. Officer Foster left the baggie in the vehicle and called for a Uintah County unit.
Deputy Helms advised Jerod of his Miranda Rights, and he agreed to speak with him. Jerod told the Deputy the baggie in the vehicle was meth. Jerod was arrested and placed inside the patrol vehicle.
Deputy Helms looked in the plastic baggie and found a round blue pill and a black substance. The pills were identified as Oxycodone. The Deputy asked Jerod about the black substance, and he stated the black substance was heroin.
Both Officers kept searching the vehicle and located a green in color pen tube with burnt residue in it between the driver's seat and the center console. Deputy Helms collected all the evidence and transported Jerod to the Uintah County Jail.
