Scooters Pizza And Grub Owners Arrested On A Federal Warrant And Drugs

Updated: Jun 5


| Vernal, Ut. | May 29th, 2024 |

A Uintah County Deputy assisted FBI Agents with conducting a traffic stop in front of the Sunburst Daycare at 650 North Vernal. The vehicle was stopped for not having insurance, and it was believed one of the occupants was Lee Anglin, who had an active Federal arrest warrant.

The passenger was identified as Lee Anglin and was taken into custody. While Deputy Watkins was working on the consent to search the vehicle, FBI Agents allowed the driver, 40-year-old Jenni Marie Anglin, to walk into the daycare to use the bathroom.

Nothing was found inside the vehicle when the deputy learned that Jenni had walked into the daycare to use the bathroom, and he went in to look for her.

Daycare personnel pointed the deputy toward the bathroom, where Jenni could be heard talking on the phone. The daycare was placed into a soft lockdown.

Deputy Watkins knocked on the door. Jenni responded that she had very bad diarrhea and would be a minute. Jenni exited the bathroom after several knocks and hearing the toilet flush several times.

The deputy looked inside the bathroom and didn’t see anything. Jennie had her purse with her and was asked if she had disposed of anything inside the bathroom or left anything because he did not want the children at this daycare to come in contact with anything that may hurt them. Deputy Watkins told Jenni if there was anything she left inside the bathroom, he needed to know; Jenni denied hiding or disposing of anything.

Jenni was asked if her purse could be searched, and she allowed the deputy's consent. He found two unlabeled bottles containing pills and a small container with a lot of white residue. While under Miranda, Jenni told the deputy the pills inside the unlabeled bottles were Tramadol, a Schedule four narcotic. Jennie stated she obtained these pills from another individual. The residue inside the smaller container was Lortabs, a Schedule 2 narcotic, according to Jenni.

It appeared the pills had been crushed because of the residue observed. Jenni admitted she did not have a prescription for either controlled substance and admitted she purchased the Lortabs from a friend and paid $5 a piece.

Deputy Watkins received a call from daycare personnel. When he arrived, a worker who entered the bathroom after they left found an empty pill bottle in the cupboard behind the rolls of paper towels.

The deputy went back into the bathroom and pulled the trash bag out. At the bottom underneath the bag were two more pill bottles, similar to the ones that contained the Tramadol, along with a blue pill crusher. All three of these items, especially the pill crusher and one of the pill bottles, had what appeared to be residue inside of them.

During this second interview, Jenni admitted to entering the daycare, using the bathroom, disposing of the substance inside the pill containers, and placing these containers and the pill crusher in the trash can. According to Jenni, when Deputy Watkins asked her husband, Lee Anglin, out of the vehicle, he handed them to her; she intentionally took these pill containers, which she claimed had about a half inch of substance inside, along with the pill crusher, into the Day Care, which was actively running and disposed them in the toilet then discarding their containers inside the bathroom.

Jenni admitted the blue container was used for crushing pain pills she purchases from a friend for $5 each and snorts them.

Deputy Watkins interviewed Lee Anglin; while under Miranda, he admitted to giving his wife the pill bottle containing narcotics as he was exiting the vehicle. When asked how much substance was inside the containers, he indicated they were about a half inch of substance, which was consistent with what Jenni said.

Deputy Watkins stated, “The containers found inside the trash, one had residue inside, which tested positive for methamphetamine. The pill bottle had enough residue that if a child would have found either of these items, the pain pill powder in the crusher or the methamphetamine, it could have been devastating."

Jenni Anglin was booked into the Uintah County Jail for possession of a schedule four narcotic (Tramadol), possession of a schedule two narcotic (crushed-up pain pills), possession of methamphetamine (a substance found inside the pill bottle she disposed of), each of these charges were enhanced one degree because of the drug-free zone. Jenni, under Miranda, intentionally disposed of these illegal narcotics in a daycare faculty that was actively running.

Jenni Anglin was also charged with evidence tampering; she knowingly and intentionally destroyed evidence to hinder our investigation. Jenni intentionally claimed she had severe diarrhea, removed the items from the vehicle, took her purse and items into the bathroom inside a daycare, and intentionally destroyed evidence. Jennie Anglin was also charged with operating a vehicle with no insurance.

Lee Anglin was released from Uintah County Jail's custody into Federal custody, and transported out of the area.

Lee Anglin, who served 12 years in prison for a $10 milllion scam, was arrested Wednesday in Orland Park.Sun-Times file

Deputy U.S. marshals and Orland Park cops on Wednesday arrested a 50-year-old businessman who failed to report to federal prison for parole violations in a $10 million fraud case.

Lee Anglin was taken into custody at a sports and dining club on 143rd Street in Orland Park after the Orland Park Police Department got a tip he was there.

A man who said he runs the club’s daily operations told the Sun-Times that Anglin’s wife, Jenni, is the president of the facility, called the Riviera Country Club.

Lee Anglin was paroled in 2018 after serving about 12 years in prison for a $10 million real-estate scam.

Anglin violated his parole when he failed to tell his parole agent about business ventures he and his wife were involved with in Utah. He also failed to tell the court he was getting paid for providing legal advice to inmates. He was supposed to report to prison June 29 for a six-month sentence.

Court records involving his parole violation didn’t mention his involvement in the Orland Park facility, which opened in June after closing under previous ownership during the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week, a man who identified himself as Fletcher Handford said he runs the daily operations of the facility and told the Sun-Times that Lee Anglin wasn’t involved in the business, but that Anglin’s wife was president of the venture. “I deal directly with Jenni,” Handford said.

A Facebook post in May, signed by “Lee & Jenni,” said they planned to invest “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in the complex and that “husband and wife are deeply involved in every decision.” Jenni Anglin lives in Utah and Anglin was living in Chicago while on parole, according to court records.

In a statement, the Orland Park Police Department said the village is “reviewing all potential code, business and/or liquor license violations” for the facility.
