UTAH COUNTY, Utah, Oct. 14, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah County Sheriff’s officials are looking for a Utah County Jail inmate who was recently admitted to a Drug Court program and has walked away from the program.
Ryan Thomas Miller, 26, of Orem, was allowed to move to the Odyssey House of Utah in Salt Lake City, a news release from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office says. Odyssey House provides a residential substance abuse treatment program.
Miller agreed to wear a GPS ankle monitor, which was required for him to be allowed to move to Odyssey House.
On Monday, he removed the ankle monitor and left the program, the news release says.
“While Miller was not in custody within the confines of the UCSO jail facility in Spanish Fork, he was only allowed to leave as part of the court ordered GPS monitoring program. To remove the GPS device and leave supervision is considered escape,” the news release states.
Miller was being held on the following charges:
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Theft, multiple counts
- Attempted possession of credit card (stolen)
When Miller is apprehended he will also face a charge of escape, a third-degree felony.
In a tweet Monday, UCSO said, “Miller is a known heroin user and may be at risk if not apprehended.”
Anyone who may have seen Miller since his escape, or who has any information regarding his whereabouts, is asked to call Sgt. Collet through Central Utah Dispatch at 801-794 3970.
