A court approved search warrant was served on a home in Roy, UT.

“Three individuals were arrested for obstruction of justice on 8-10-2022 for their involvement,” the statement says, naming the newly charged as 49-year-old Damian Stafon Colemen, Sr.; 47-year-old Kenya Susett Coleman; and 20-year-old Liana Deleon Guerrero Blas.
