CEDAR CITY — Two people are in police custody after officers discovered suspected methamphetamine and marijuana inside their Cedar City home Thursday.
Early Thursday morning, officers from the Cedar City Police Department responded to a home located on 200 North after receiving a noise complaint, Cedar City Police Sgt. Jimmy Roden said. Upon their arrival, officers spoke with two occupants of the home, Mark Randall, 48, and Becky Knowles, 52, and noticed something peculiar about their behavior.
“They we’re exuding signs of drug use,” Roden said, “and the officers there believed they were under the influence.”
As officers interviewed Randall and Knowles, both admitted there were drugs inside their home, Roden said. Officers then obtained a search warrant and entered the residence.
Once inside, officers located personal use amounts of marijuana and suspected methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia, Roden said.
Police also discovered that Randall had two active warrants for his arrest: a $500 warrant issued by the Sevier County Justice Court for failure to appear on charges for supplying tobacco to a minor; and a $240 cash-only warrant out of Millard County Justice Court for failure to appear on misdemeanor speeding charges.
Both Randall and Knowles were arrested and booked into the Iron County Jail. Randall is charged with one second-degree felony for possession of methamphetamine along with his two active warrants. His bail for release on the newer charges is set at $5,000.
Knowles is also charged with one second-degree felony for methamphetamine possession, along with two class A misdemeanor charges for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Her bail for release stands at $5,000.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
