On 5/6/2018 at 1533 Hrs Dispatch advised of a razor roll over with one person that had been ejected that had severe head trauma. It was reported to be half a mile past the water tower. After a mile it was clear that the accident was further up the road then what the ambulance could get to. Deputies requested that search and rescue respond as well. Paramedics arrived assessed the patient. The patient was not wearing a helmet or a seat belt when he went off the road and rolled the Polaris General. Deputies could smell the strong odor of alcohol coming from the driver. There was also beer cans strewn across the accident scene.

On 4-25-18 Sevier County Deputies were dispatched to what was reported as a structure fire in Elsinore (425 south old highway 89) at 11:14 AM. The Elsinore Fire Department was dispatched along with the Monroe Fire Department. The fire departments also had to have water tenders dispatched as well. The fire was burning an old shed and an abandoned single wide mobile home that had been to the property for dismantling. Earlier in the day, a subject had been burning the canal banks in the area. At some point the subject burning the canal banks had left the area. Witnesses said they say two separate fires along the canal bank an hour before the fire was called in. The fire had been driven by the wind towards the shed and mobile home from the canal bank. There were two other trailers that were residences, but were not occupied at the time, that were threatened by the fire. The fire departments were able to extinguish the flames but were called back later as the winds picked up and smoke was picking up. There were no injuries in the fire. Damage estimates are yet to be determined. The subject who started the fire on the canal bank was cited for reckless burning. As a reminder, you must get a burn permit to burn and notify public safety dispatch when you get a permit. It is a good idea to check with the local fire warden or fire department to see what hazards may come up while burning.

A fire in Elsinore is currently being fought by Elsinore and Monroe Fire Departments. There is a shed and a mobile home on fire. No road closures are in effect. Please stay out of the area and first responders do their work

On April 17, 2018 Deputies and the Major Crimes Unit from the Sevier County Sheriffs Office responded to an aggravated assault, robbery in Elsinore that resulted in multiple arrests. The suspects went to a residence on a pretense of visiting and then committed the robbery using handguns to take money from the resident. The suspects then assaulted the victim with the handguns and then fled the scene. The victim reportedly lost consciousness during the assault. Deputies located the owner of the suspect vehicle while Richfield City PD officers located the vehicle at a residence in Richfield. Working together they were able to locate the suspects in the home in Richfield. Ryan Carpenter (age 22 of Richfield), Shawn Booth (age 21 of Richfield), and a 17-year old female Juvenile (of Richfield) were arrested and booked into the Sevier County Jail and Juvenile Detention Center. There were two firearms recovered, one of them was stolen. Methamphetamine and heroin were also collected as evidence from a residence in Richfield where the suspects were located. All three subjects were charged with multiple charges, including aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, felony possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, and other related charges. Carpenter was also booked on multiple narcotics distribution charges that were unrelated to the incident. With assistance from Richfield City Police Officers and the Sevier County Deputies working together on this case drugs, guns and violent criminals were taken off the streets making it safer for all the citizens of Sevier County.

Today we laid to rest one of Sevier County’s most memorable SAR members - David K Willden. He was very passionate about search and rescue and served for 20 years as an active member. He served in all the leadership roles and more than once was our commander. He was involving all aspects of firearms training and was the only civilian to have ever gone through the POST firearms instructor course. Dave was a “diamond in the rough”. His commitment to the community was an example to all, even though he managed to get a few colorful expletives in the middle of getting his point across. Dave, while you are gone, you are most definitely not forgotten.

SEVIER COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE *****Press release****** On 2-17-18 at 4:03 AM Richfield City Fire Department, Sevier County Deputies, and Sevier County EMT’s were dispatched to a residential fire on 2330 East and 1700 north. 85 year old Owen Kay Reynolds died in the fire.

She pulled the pin but when she depressed the lever on the extinguisher nothing happened. She then tried to get into the bedroom to get Owen but it was too hot and she could not see anything due to the smoke and flames. She then ran to her phone and dialed 911. Firefighters had to fight active flames before they could get to the bedroom and locate Owen and bring him out. Owen was pulled from the house but did not survive the fire. The medical examiner was called to investigate the cause of death and an autopsy will be performed. No foul play is suspected.
