Roosevelt, Ut. On 12/31/23, Officer Harrison was contacted by Sgt Watkins with the Uintah County Sheriff's Office. Officer Harrison was advised that a wanted subject was traveling to Roosevelt in a red four-door passenger car.
The male subject was identified as 22-year-old Dreaven Doyle Hunter, who had a state-wide warrant for his arrest.
Officer Harrison observed the red passenger car Sgt Watkins described to him, which didn't have a rear license plate. Due to traffic, the officer wasn't able to do a traffic stop on the car until 900 East 200 North, at which point the vehicle pulled into the Ballard Maverick.
The front passenger of the vehicle was Dreaven Hunter, the wanted subject. While the officer spoke with the unknown driver, he saw two pieces of tin foil and a small plastic tub with melted knots and burnt residue.
There was also in the door handle area a small plastic baggie with meth residue. Officer Harrison had dispatch run a check on Dreaven, and they confirmed the warrant out of Vernal for his arrest.
Dreaven was asked to step out of the vehicle and was advised about the warrant, the tin foil, the drug paraphernalia, and the car was going to be searched.
During the vehicle search on the passenger floor where Dreaven was sitting, a black box with several more tooters and more tin foil, all of which had burnt residue, was found. Also located was another piece of tin foil with a piece of a pill suspected to be Fentanyl.
Dreaven was transported to the hospital, where the officer spoke with him more. Dreaven was asked when the last time he used narcotics and he stated today, about 45 minutes ago, and it was Fentanyl.
Officer Harrison advised Dreaven he was under arrest for possession of Fentanyl, possession of methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia. Due to Dreaven's prior history, his charges were enhanced to felony possession.
