arrested in Logan, suspected of marijuana possession
By Diana Hurren
April 30, 2006 | Gordon Jay Lewis,
29, and Karin Barrientez, 34, were arrested on suspicion
of possession of marijuana in a drug-free zone Thursday
morning. The home where both were arrested is at 519
N. 400 East in Logan, across the street from Adams Elementary
School, which means the pot was used in a drug-free
zone, making the offense a class-A misdemeanor.
Sgt. Simonson of the Logan Police Department and his
partner, officer Jacob Boehme, were visiting the house
to talk to Barrientez about a traffic warrant, but could
tell there was drug activity going on inside.
"You could smell marijuana had been smoked in the
room," said Simonson.
Simonson said both participants admitted to using
the drugs immediately after they were asked and offered
up the little portion of marijuana that was remaining
without a fight.
Barrientez and Lewis both posted bail Thursday and
have been released from jail.
