Dispatch Puts Out A To Be On The Look Out For A Fugitive With A No Bail Board Of Pardons Warrant


| Roosevelt, Ut. | June 28th, 2024 |

On Friday, June 28th, there was a notice put out by dispatch to be on the lookout for a fugitive, 50-year-old James Earl Lee, with a no-bail Board of Pardons warrant.

Officer Bellon was driving past the smoke shop when the two officers noticed a motorcycle with a male and a female on it, which matched the description of the ATL.

The officers turned down an alley where they saw James heading down and thought he had turned off. The officers pulled into the parking lot on the side of Smoke Mania and saw James and the female on the motorcycle walk into the smoke shop.

Officer Bellon went into the smoke shop, walked up to James, and told him he was being detained until Agents from AP&P arrived and were able to positively identify him.

James was arrested and taken out to the patrol truck. While searching James, he stated he had some drugs tucked in his waistband behind his belt buckle. Officer Bellon removed a wallet-like item and asked what kind of drugs were in it. James stated that it contained Fentanyl.

Officer Bellon continued the search. He found several lighters, and James said there was also marijuana in that pocket. The officer also found a small roll of cash in his right front pocket. In his left pocket was a small tooter straw. When asked if he had anything in his boots, James stated he did have something in his left boot tucked into his sock.

James was asked to sit down, and the officer felt his boots, finding another tooter wrapped in tissue paper.

At the police station, the officers counted the money totaling $401 in denominations being consistent with drug sales. Along with Fentanyl consistent for sales (137.5 pills). James was placed under arrest for drug possession with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia.

The current offense is a felony committed while on probation or parole, or while free on bail awaiting trial on a previous felony charge. The court finds substantial evidence to support the current felony charge.

Therefore, the court orders that James Earl Lee is to be held without bail.

All the articles that come from are from the affidavits & probable cause reports that the officers write. If you would like you can get a copy of the report from the website below.
