Vernal, Ut.- On 1/24/23, Sergeant Gledhill saw a vehicle exiting the north entrance/exit of the B's convenience store on 500 West. The vehicle stopped on the sidewalk and turned westbound on 100 North.

Sergeant Gledhill initiated a traffic stop at 50 North 600 West, made contact with the male driver, and saw a male in the front passenger seat. While speaking to the driver, Sergeant Gledhill asked the male passenger for his identification, and he asked if there was a reason why I was asking for that.

Sergeant Gledhill told the passenger I was simply asking, but he refused to provide his information. The passenger was missing his left eye and looked familiar, but Sergeant Gledhill could not remember his name.

Sergeant Gledhill returned to his patrol vehicle and conducted a records check. While doing so, he checked the Spillman database for individuals missing an eye.

Sergeant Gledhill found a small list of individuals and recognized one of the names of Randy Allen Lee.

Sergeant Gledhill checked Randy's information and found that he had an NCIC nationwide extradition from the US Marshall's Office for a weapons offense.

Randy was placed under arrest for the warrant. After being arrested and searched, Randy was found in possession of methamphetamine, glass pipes containing methamphetamine, marijuana pipes, a plastic container that had marijuana, a metal container that had pills verified to be Tramadol, and a full flask that contained alcohol.

These items were all found in either Randy's coat jacket or pants pockets. About the pills, Randy claimed that he had a prescription. Randy reported that the flask contained peppermint schnapps.

Randy was booked into jail on a warrant, drug offenses, and open container. The possession of methamphetamine charge was enhanced to a Felony because of Randy's criminal history.
