WEST HAVEN, Utah, Nov. 14, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — A 34-year-old woman who gave a Weber County Sheriff‘s deputy the false identity and claimed to be a 15-year-old girl was arrested on multiple felony drug charges Saturday at a gas station/convenience store in West Haven.

The officer stopped at about 5:08 p.m. when he noticed a vehicle with expired Wyoming plates, the probable cause statement says.

One of the vehicle occupants “volunteered her name as Saydie (last name and Social Security number withheld by Gephardt Daily) … and said she was 15 years old. Even after I pointed out she does not look 15, the SSN comes back to another person, and could not find her in any database, she insisted she was Saydie.”

The woman ultimately identified as a relative of another vehicle occupant, “and likely did not wish to give it (her real name) due to an active warrant,” the Weber County Sheriff deputy’s statement says.

The deputy observed a straw “tooter” pipe, often used for smoking heroin, in the vehicle’s center console. Found after a more thorough search was approximately two pounds of marijuana, electronic scales, plastic baggies, 5.9 grams of heroin, roughly 30 Xanax pills in a metal container, a marijuana grinder, three firearms (one pistol and two rifles, and burglary type tools including bolt cutters and lock picking kit.
