Summit County Prosecuting Attorney provided information on the following cases filed between Nov. 4 and Nov. 8.
Curtis Reed, 36, of Eureka, California, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. On Nov. 6, Reed was stopped on Interstate 80 in Summit County by the Utah Highway Patrol for a minor traffic violation. Troopers searched the car and discovered 48 pounds of marijuana in a false hydraulic fluid tank in the back of the truck.
David Jay Sindorf, 36, of Salt Lake City, was charged with felony driving under the influence of alcohol. On Aug. 3, a Park City police officer stopped Sindorf on Park Avenue for speeding. The officer obtained a warrant to draw a sample of Sindorf’s blood and determined that Sindorf’s blood alcohol level was .30, more than three times the legal limit. Sindorf’s charge was enhanced to a felony because he has twice previously been convicted of driving under the influence in 2007 and 2009.
Mark Patrick Moyer, 45, of Park City, was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a restricted person. On Nov. 3, while investigating threatening behavior by a juvenile, deputies with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office searched a storage unit belonging to Moyer. They found an AK-47 and a 20-gauge shotgun. Moyer has previously been convicted of a felony and is therefore prohibited from possessing any firearms.
Melquiades Ramirez, Jr., 21, of Midvale, was charged with assaulting a police officer, assault and resisting arrest. On Nov. 1, Park City police officers broke up a fight between Ramirez and another man in the China Bridge parking structure. When officers attempted to detain and handcuff him, Ramirez kicked one of the officers.
Noel Dawn Martin, 35, of Park City, was charged with felony driving under the influence and several other traffic-related motor vehicle offenses. On Sept. 29, a Sheriff’s deputy stopped Martin on a scooter near Kimball Junction for a minor traffic violation. The Utah State Crime Lab determined that Martin’s blood-alcohol was .11, well above the legal limit of .08. Martin’s charge was enhanced to a felony because in 2010 he was twice convicted of driving under the influence.
Richard Blaine Jones, 48, of South Lake Tahoe, California, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. On Oct. 18, a Sheriff’s deputy stopped Jones on I-80 in Summit County for a minor traffic violation. The deputy searched the van and found 50 pounds of marijuana in two suitcases.
