Vernal, Ut.- On 4/1/23, Officer White was working an investigation at the Econo Lodge at 311 East Main Street when he was approached by a woman who identified herself as 37-year-old Shaylee Jade Hall.
The Officer conducted a records search of Shaylee through central dispatch and learned she had active warrants for her arrest.
Officer White informed Shaylee that she was under arrest and placed her in handcuffs. He searched her person to make sure she didn't have any weapons. She stated, "She had something in her bra, and she didn't know what it was."
The Officer asked her if it was something that was going to poke him, and she said no. He then asked her if it was something that wasn't supposed to be introduced into a jail facility, and she said no.
He told Shaylee the jail staff would be able to help her get it out, but if it were something that wasn't supposed to be introduced into a jail facility, it would be an enhanced charge.
She then said that “she thought it was nail polish.”
Officer White transported Shaylee to the Uintah County Jail, where she was booked on her warrants.
The jail staff searched Shaylee, and they discovered that the item in her bra was a knife and that she had a handcuff key on a bracelet around her ankle. The key was obscured because she was wearing boots.
Shaylee Hall was booked into jail on the charge of introducing a prohibited item into a jail facility for possessing a deadly weapon and an implement of escape pursuant.
