Court Report

The following cases were heard in Summit County’s Third District Court last week:

Shane Foster, 39, was sentenced to zero to five years in prison for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, a third-degree felony, and for possession of a restricted firearm. According to Summit County Attorney David Brickey, Foster was arrested in February in the Basin after members of the SWAT team served a no-knock search warrant late at night. Deputies found cash, methamphetamine and numerous weapons, including an assault rifle, crossbow, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and handguns.

Brickey said that Coalville resident Melvin Lee Kellogg, 36, who is charged with stalking a minor, had his first appearance in court last week and had a court date set for August 13. According to the charges, Kellogg was arrested after he repeatedly contacted a minor and kept going to the minor’s place of work to talk to him.

According to Brickey, if someone is given a reasonable amount of notice to stop contacting someone and they do so more than twice, they can be charged with stalking, a misdemeanor..
