In October of 2014, Back NET (the Wasatch Back Narcotics Enforcement Team) performed surveillance at a Heber City, Utah motel, the M-Star, where they suspected drugs were being sold from a motel room. Agents with Back NET then obtained a search warrant which resulted in a sting operation that led to the arrest of a man and two women.
According to an article at KUTV.com, Brien Mills was arrested on a street in the city, and was allegedly in possession of drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine. He was arrested. Meanwhile, police went to the M-Star Motel, where they discovered what they called a “large quantity” of drugs, mostly methamphetamine. A spokesman for the Heber City police said that “There was meth everywhere,” and that one of the officers in searching the motel room bumped into a lamp. A baggie containing meth fell out of the lamp. The two women, Allyson Vavro and Tiffany Monson, were arrested. Investigators allege that the two women were selling drugs out of the motel room.
Some of the paraphernalia found include loaded and unloaded heroin syringes, and used meth pipe. The three face misdemeanor and first-degree felony drug charges.
In the state of Michigan, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute or deliver is an extremely serious charge. If convicted, the offender may face criminal penalties that include up to 20 years in prison, fines of up to $25,000, and more. Penalties may be enhanced if certain factors exist such as the presence of firearms, if the crime was committed in close proximity to a park or school, or if the defendant has a prior criminal record.
A conviction will result not only in loss of your freedom, but ruin of your career and reputation as well. While you may be able to plea to lesser charges and spend less time behind bars, the impact to your life may last forever.
Whatever your circumstances may be, do not face criminal charges without the legal guidance and support of an aggressive and capable Michigan drug crime attorney who will begin work immediately to protect your freedom, future, and reputation.
