Following his arrest in February, Price resident Daniel Hurtado appeared on Monday in Seventh District Court for sentencing on two charges of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and two charges of possession or use of a controlled substance, all third-degree felonies.
Hurtado was originally booked into the Carbon County Jail after allegedly being found with over 30 grams of methamphetamine, 7.5 grams of heroin, prescription pills, paraphernalia and over $100, according to the Price City Police Department.
Upon appearing for sentencing, Hurtado was given a pre-sentence investigation report created for his case. Therein, Hurtado was placed in the highest risk category and was thereby recommended a prison sentence.
Upon first seeing the report, however, Hurtado fled the courtroom according to the Carbon County Attorney’s Office.
The court then issued a no-bail warrant for Hurtado. The court will also await Hurtado being taken into custody to impose sentencing. At that time, any additional consequences for fleeing will be determined.
