On Tuesday, June 12, the basketball courts on Stagecoach Drive were vandalized and graffiti was drawn on the court. The Sheriff’s office had no suspects.

Four juveniles were reported to be doorbell ditching houses on Creek Stone Court in the Basin for the third night in a row. Deputies located the four juveniles and contacted their parents.

On Wednesday, June 13, a driver was pulled over in the Basin for driving on a revoked license. Deputies found the man was also in violation of an ignition interlock device and was wanted in Wyoming.

A logging company near Bear River reported $6,000 worth of equipment was missing. Deputies located the equipment outside of a suspect’s house and arrested two men in connection with the theft.

On Wednesday night, an off-duty deputy reported a reckless driver in the Basin and followed the driver home. The driver got out of his car and confronted the off-duty deputy. Other officers showed up shortly after and arrested the man for driving under the influence.

On Thursday, June 14, deputies pulled over a driver in Brown’s Canyon who had an active warrant out for his arrest and found an Alprazolam pill in his vehicle. The driver was arrested and booked in the Summit County Jail for possession of a controlled substance, speeding and an outstanding warrant.

A resident in Echo reported that someone knocked in her window and when she looked outside someone had written "RIP" in tar in front of her trailer.

Also on Thursday, a condo-owner in the Basin reported that a television, DVD, and stereo were stolen from his condo that has been unoccupied for the past two weeks.

A hotel in the Basin reported that someone was intoxicated and asking people for rides in the parking lot. Deputies found the man passed out on the sidewalk and arrested him for public intoxication.

On Friday, June 15, a Basin resident reported a suspicious vehicle on the street. When deputies arrived, they found a 19-year-old next to the vehicle and smelled marijuana. After searching the vehicle, deputies found marijuana, drug paraphernalia, alcohol, and a schedule IV- drug, Klonopin.

Deputies made contact with a group of individuals inside a parking structure in the Basin for possible tobacco violation. Deputies noticed, in plain view, a baggie of marijuana in the backseat of one of the resident’s vehicles. After the discovery of marijuana, one of the suspects fled on foot and deputies chased him a short distance before the suspect surrendered.

Also on June 15, three females reported that they had been attacked by several men who had tried breaking the windows of their vehicle in Rockport State Park. The men claimed that the women worked for an "escort" service and that they had left a party of 10 to 15 men without providing any services. Three of the men chased after the women and cut them off, banging on their windows, threatening them and demanding the women return the money. An investigation is ongoing.

The man said he was camping near Whiskey Creek before he lost cell phone service. There is a Whiskey Creek in Summit, Uinta and Daggett County. All three agencies were contacted and began searching for the woman. The woman returned to her home in Salt Lake City the next day and the search was called off.
