PRICE CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT NEWS RELEASE On Sunday morning, September 2, 2018, just past 0130, Price Police Officer Tyler Cressall stopped Krystle Marie Noyes, DOB 10-2-86 of Price for an alleged stop sign violation on Main St. Officer Shawn Sackett arrived on scene to assist. Independently, Officer Cressall observed what appeared to be a large amount of cash in Krystle’s purse, and Officer Sackett observed a tooter (drug paraphernalia) near the same cash. A subsequent search of the vehicle, allegedly revealed $2,602.00 cash, 2.31 ounces of methamphetamine, 1.55 ounces of heroin, 1.14 ounces of marijuana, 6 different types of prescription pills (including opiates), numerous items of drug paraphernalia, three Utah Horizon Cards not belonging to Ms. Noyes, and a journal detailing, among other things, Ms. Noyes business dealings relating to drugs. Ms. Noyes also told the officers she has no job or source of income. Ms. Noyes was driving a 2003 Acura (cash purchase detailed in the journal), and the car and money were seized with intent to pursue forfeiture proceedings. All evidence items were also seized. Ms. Noyes was arrested, booked into the Carbon County Jail, and charged with felony level Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine, Heroin, Marijuana, and Prescription Pills. The Carbon County Attorney’s Office will review the report to determine the appropriate formal charges to file against Ms. Noyes.

PRICE CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT NEWS RELEASE On August 22, 2018 at 2055 Price City Police Officer Tyler Cressall was dispatched to the Fitness Center at 42 E. Main St. in Price on report of one of the front plate glass display windows being broken out. Upon arrival, Officer Cressall located a pair of sunglasses that appeared to have been left behind at the scene. Cressall and the business owner reviewed security footage of the incident and discovered that at 1859, a male with long blonde hair allegedly lost control of the bicycle he was riding, and crashed into the window, shattering it. The bicyclist picked himself up, and walked his bike westbound down the sidewalk. Officer Shawn Sackett arrived on scene and as he and Cressall were looking for blood evidence at the scene, a nearby business employee approached them and asked if they might be looking for a man who was badly bleeding. The officers were able to make contact with the male, identified as Timothy Ryan Amos, DOB 2-26-76, of Price. Mr. Amos had a badly bleeding cut to the palm of his left hand, and the officers were able to determine that he was allegedly intoxicated. Based on the fact that Mr. Amos had clearly demonstrated he was a danger to himself, he was arrested for intoxication, taken to the hospital for treatment of his wound, and then booked into the Carbon County Jail for the class c misdemeanor offense. While noting that it is not against the law to ride a bicycle while intoxicated in Utah, the Price City Police Department cautions citizens against the practice. This is an example where a severe injury was sustained, medical expenses incurred, and property damage sustained by an innocent local business. Please see attached photos/videos.

PRICE CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT NEWS RELEASE School is In, Cops are Out Crosswalk enforcement to help keep children safe and educate drivers on new crosswalk law WHAT – As school starts the last week of August and into September, the Price City Police Department will increase law enforcement operations around high-risk pedestrian crosswalks near schools. These operations may include plain-clothes officers crossing as decoys with patrol vehicles on standby to stop any violators. The enforcement will aim to increase children’s safety by educating drivers on crosswalk laws, speed limits, and distracted driving - all of which contribute to both the frequency and severity of pedestrian crashes. The revised law, UCA 41-6a-1002(2), mandates that vehicles come to a complete stop for anyone in a school crosswalk, regardless of which half of the road they are on. In other words, once a pedestrian steps into a school crosswalk, drivers must stop for the pedestrian until he or she is completely out of the crosswalk. WHEN: End of August and into September 2018 WHERE: All public, private, and university related crosswalks within Price City Police Department’s jurisdiction. VISUALS: ● Vehicles being cited ● Undercover enforcement ● Pedestrians in crosswalk WHY: With kids back in school there will be more foot traffic during peak drive times, especially during school beginning and ending times. Law enforcement agencies hope to remind drivers and pedestrians to keep an eye out for each other. Pedestrian crashes are 100 percent preventable if everyone works together to avoid tragedy. Law enforcement also hopes the new school crosswalk law will further protect pedestrians near schools. Year to date in 2018, there have been 19 pedestrian fatalities in Utah. From 2015 to 2017: ● 27% (642) of all pedestrian crashes involved children ages 4-17 ● 21 resulted in fatalities and 78 were severely injured ● 60% (381) occurred while the child was in a crosswalk Please see attached photos/videos.
