Man admits he bought cocaine with a check

Monday, a Kamas man admitted to a 3rd District Court judge that he bought $200 worth of cocaine with a personal check from an undercover narcotics officer.

South Summit resident Brandon Larry Johnson, 34, faces spending up to five years in prison and paying a nearly $5,000 fine when he is sentenced June 9 on one count of possession of cocaine, a third-degree felony.

The alleged drug deal occurred in Francis, according to court documents.

A prosecutor said the check Johnson used to buy the drugs is evidence in the case. The cocaine was allegedly purchased from an agent on a narcotics task force on the Wasatch Back, who focuses his enforcement efforts in Summit and Wasatch counties.
