PRICE, UTAH – November 6, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – A Price woman has been arrested after authorities found her living in and selling drugs from a storage unit.
A Facebook post from Price City Police Department said agents from the Carbon Metro Drug Task Force have been investigating the drug pushing activities of Amber Hafer, 30, for the past few months.
The post said agents determined that Hafer has been living in and dealing from the storage sheds located at 2750 South Hwy 10, south of Price. The storage units are not zoned for residential living.
The statement says agents were in the process of obtaining a search warrant from the Seventh District Court. Meanwhile the unit was under surveillance by police, and Hafer was observed leaving the unit and heading toward Price.
Hafer was intercepted by a Price City police officer, detained and returned to the storage unit, and the search warrant was served.
Hafer was found to be in possession of 15.8 grams of methamphetamine, 6.1 grams of heroin, 27 grams of marijuana, and items of paraphernalia including baggies, syringes, spoons, scales and drug pipes.
She was booked into the Carbon County Jail on felony charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, heroin, and marijuana, as well as a misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia. The Carbon County Attorney will screen the report to determine what formal charges to bring.
Hafer has 13 prior arrests including assault, paraphernalia, retail theft and drug offenses.
