According to the probable cause statement filed in connection with the arrest, Ivins City Police Detective Nicholas C. Nuccitelli and Officer James Evans observed Limb sleeping in the front seat of his vehicle, which was parked on the 700 East block of 590 South in Ivins. When Limb stepped out of the vehicle, a small Ziploc bag containing suspected methamphetamine fell to the floorboard of the vehicle.

A vehicle inventory was then performed, at which point a silver tin box containing suspected marijuana and a tinfoil pipe were found in a toolbox in the truck. Limb confirmed that it was his marijuana.

Limb was booked into Washington County’s Purgatory Correctional Facility. According to booking information, Limb’s bail stands at $6,166.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

      Cigarettes will do that to you too. 19+ yrs ago my dh met my younger sister for the 1st time. I had told him that I was the eldest child. When he met her he accused me of not being truthful with him. He said she looked to be about 40 not 24-25. I said she smokes.
