Price City Police Department Press Release
On Tuesday evening, Price resident Samual Thomas Bowman, 34, was arrested by officers from the Carbon Metro Drug Task Force, Price Police Department, Carbon County Sheriff’s Office and Wellington Police Department at a location south of Wellington.
The arrest came after drug task force officers were informed by a confidential informant that Bowman, who is an agent assigned to the Price office of Utah Adult Probation and Parole, was allegedly involved in a sexual relationship with a female probationer he supervises.
During a subsequent investigation, task force officers observed the probationer and Bowman together in Bowman’s state vehicle in the Farnham Road area of Carbon County, south of Wellington.
Bowman was arrested on a third degree felony charge of custodial sexual relations and was subsequently booked at the Emery County Jail.
Additional charges are possible as the Carbon Metro Drug Task Force and the Utah Adult Probation and Parole continue to investigate and after the Carbon County Attorney reviews the case.
