A Utah County Sheriff’s Office news release states that a substantial quantity of drugs was seized when Utah County narcotics detectives stopped a car in Orem at about 7:30 p.m. Monday.

According to the news release, detectives saw Kelli Dawn Clark, 38, texting while driving. She is known to detectives and was driving on a suspended license.

The detectives watched Clark and her passenger, Breanna Jenee Ketler, 25, also of Springville, make several stops with known drug users, the release states.

After detectives stopped the vehicle, they discovered a half-pound of methamphetamine, more than an ounce of heroin and several different prescription medications. According to the news release, these drugs have a street value in excess of $28,000.

Clark and Ketler were arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and heroin with intent to distribute. These charges were in a drug free zone and include first-, second- and third-degree felonies, according to the sheriff’s office.

Clark was also booked for DUI, driving with a suspended driver license, and texting while driving, the release states.
