            On May 3, 2013, shortly before noon, a deputy from the Millard County Sheriff's Office stopped a car on Center Street in Delta for a minor traffic violation. As the car came to a stop, a young man jumped from the car and fled on foot. Two other occupants of the car, Candon Young of Delta, and Travis Stott who lists his address as homeless, were detained. Sheriff's deputies as well as a trooper from the Utah Highway Patrol and a member of the Central Utah Narcotics Task Force responded to the area. After a short time, a resident of the neighborhood reported seeing the subject in his back yard. With a short search of the area, the third man, Kyle Howard Leatham of West Valley, Utah, was located, hiding in a root cellar in the back lot of a home.

            A search of the car, as well as a back pack that that Leatham hid during his flight, turned up drugs and drug paraphernalia.

            Travis Stott was booked for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Safe Tip

Con-artists are not always easy to spot. Smart, extremely persuasive, and aggressive, they invade your home through the telephone and the mail, advertise in reputable newspapers and magazines, and come to your door. Most people think they’re too smart to fall for a scam. But con artists rob all kinds of people from investment counselors and doctors to teenagers and elderly widows of billions every year. It’s up to you to say NO. Use common sense and learn about old and new scams.
