LOGAN – Logan City Police and agents with the Cache-Rich Drug Task Force arrested six people this week, in three separate incidents involving packaging and selling drugs in Cache Valley. Assistant Police Chief Jeff Curtis said the arrests also led to the confiscating of a “considerable amount” of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
The first arrests occurred Tuesday, December 3, when police attempted to serve a summons to people in a Logan area home. Curtis said the police observed the people inside the home “engaged in criminal drug activity.” Four people were arrested including 38-year-old Nathan Conner, 36-year-old Jennece Conner, 42-year-old Myriam Conner and 20-year-old Trevor Schulz. They are charged with possession of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony and other charges.
The second incident occurred Wednesday, December 4, when police attempted to contact 56-year-old Jay Griffin of Smithfield. Curtis said police found him in possession of 18.9 grams of methamphetamine, valued at $1900. They also found marijuana, packaging materials, cash, and a .22 caliber Derringer handgun. He was arrested on charges including possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a restricted person, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The third incident also occurred on Wednesday when police arrested a suspected drug dealer, 24-year-old Geraldo Reynoso at a home in Hyrum. Police found almost 10 pounds of marijuana inside the home, valued at over $25,000. Curtis called the amount of drugs found a “pretty good quantity.” Reynoso was arrested on possession of marijuana, a second-degree felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Curtis said in all three incidents, the drugs were coming in from out of the state and were being packaged and sold from the homes. The three incidents are not related. Investigators are now trying to track where the drugs were coming from.
