ST. GEORGE – Two people were arrested Thursday after a search of a suspect’s home not only revealed allegedly stolen property, but drug activity as well.
St. George Police Sgt Richard Triplett said a 28-year-old male and 32-year-old female, both of St. George, were taken into custody without incident Thursday morning after police executed a search warrant in relation to the recent burglary of a Sprint store at 140 North 400 West.
The 28-year-old male is considered a prime suspect in the Sprint store burglary, Triplett said.
A police search of the home discovered property allegedly stolen from the Sprint store. The search also found meth, heroine and drug paraphernalia at the suspects’ home.
The 28-year-old male was arrested on four counts of drug-related class A misdemeanors, two second-degree felonies for meth and heroin possession, and two second-degree and two third-degree felonies in connection with the Sprint store burglary.
The 32-year-old female was arrested on two drug-related second-degree felony counts for meth and heroin possession and a class A misdemeanor count for possessing drug paraphernalia.
Ed. Note: Persons arrested are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
