County Sheriff’s Report

Deputies reportedly scolded a Boy Scout leader at Camp Steiner in the Uinta Mountains after he allowed a 12-year-old boy to leave the camp July 4.

"He and the Boy Scout leader had been involved in a disagreement," Summit County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Sherm Farnsworth said.

A motorist, who saw the boy walking along the Mirror Lake Highway, drove him to a convenience store in Kamas, he said, adding that the boy’s mother was contacted in Sandy.

"She didn’t want any type of charges filed against the leader," Farnsworth said.
