CEDAR CITY – Iron County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Cedar City man Thursday for unlawful sexual activity with a minor and drug related charges.
Tony Hymas, 22, was arrested and charged with two third-degree felonies for unlawful sexual activity with a minor, and three class-B misdemeanors for drug possession, drug paraphernalia, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to the probable cause statement filed in connection with the arrest, the arrest stems from an investigation after authorities were alerted to a welfare check in the area of the 2700 block of W. 5900 North in Cedar City. It was reported that a 14-year-old girl was home alone and when the girl’s grandparent had gone by the residence, there was a car in the driveway.
Iron County Cpl. Jeff Humphries responded to the residence.
When the 14-year-old girl opened the front door, Humphries discovered Hymas at the residence as well. Humphries informed them that he could smell the distinct odor of marijuana coming from the residence. Humphries asked them if they had any marijuana in their possession and Hymas stated that they had smoked it all.
When the girl took Humphries to the back room to show him where they had used marijuana, Humphries located JB rolling papers, a small marijuana blunt on the bed, and a condom wrapper on the floor next to the bed, according to the statement.
When questioned, Hymas and the girl both admitted that they had engaged in sexual relations. Hymas also stated he had brought the marijuana for the two to smoke.
Hymas was booked into the Iron County Jail. According to booking information, Hymas’ bail stands at $10,000.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
