A Nevada man was arrested in Utah County on Wednesday after he was allegedly found to be in possession of at least $5,600 worth of methamphetamine.
Deputies with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office were patrolling the area near mile marker 154 on State Road 6 when they observed a yellow pickup truck traveling east at a slow rate of speed.
As the truck drove down SR 6, according to the probable cause statement filed in support of the arrest, it began to swerve out of its lane of travel as well as leave the roadway several times. Deputies initiated a traffic stop after observing this behavior.
After deputies initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle came to a stop just before driving into a ditch on the side of the roadway. Authorities made contact with the driver of the vehicle, identified as 43-year-old Jason Andrew Vangundy of Henderson, Nevada.
