Roosevelt, Ut.- On 3/22/23, Officer Barton with the RPD was dispatched to 519 East 700 North on a disorderly incident.
When Officer Barton and Officer Bench arrived, they made contact with a male at the residence. The male gave the Officers a false name and birthday, claiming he was born in the 60s.
The female involved told the Officers that the male was 37 years old and his first name was Robert. Officer Barton was able to identify the man as 37-year-old Robert Bekennneth Gardner.
Robert was giving the Officers his father's name and birth date. Due to his behavior, Officer Bench placed him in his patrol vehicle while Officer Barton spoke with the female.
After speaking with the female, Officer Barton had Robert exit the patrol vehicle and asked him if he had anything on his person. Robert said he didn't.
Robert was searched, and he stated he had a syringe in his front pocket and was diabetic. The Officer saw Robert was missing his teeth and clearly had a drug problem. Officer Barton collected the syringe and looked at it, and the syringe was old.
Officer Barton told Robert the syringe wasn't from him being a diabetic. Robert was asked if he would test positive for meth, and Robert stated that he would and that he used meth today. Robert stated the syringe was not his.
Officer Barton ran Robert Gardner’s information through dispatch and was informed Robert had three warrants out for his arrest.
Robert was arrested and transported to the UBMC, cleared medically, then transported to the Duchesne County Jail, and booked in for false information, his warrants, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
