Carbon County Sheriff’s Office Press Release
On Jan. 28, at approximately 14:45 hours, Carbon County Deputy Shawn Addley, conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of 600 East and 400 South in Price. While approaching the vehicle, deputy Addley observed three occupants in the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Keith Travis Vigil (25) of Price, and the two passengers were identified as Tiffany Ann Herron (35) of Helper and Casey J. Duncan (29) of Wellington.
After returning to his vehicle to run routine checks on Vigil, deputy Addley learned that Vigil’s license was suspended for a drug offense. Deputy Addley returned to the vehicle driven by Vigil and informed him that his license was suspended and had him step out of the vehicle where he was handcuffed and taken into custody.
Due to Vigil having a suspended license for a drug offense, Herron and Duncan not having valid licenses and the owner of the vehicle not being present, a state tax impound was completed on the vehicle.
During the inventory, deputy Addley located a small black bag in the back seat of the vehicle between the driver and passenger rear seat. The bag contained a crystal like substance suspected to be methamphetamine, several baggies containing a brown powder substance suspected to be heroin, two small bags with a black substance suspected to be heroin, a small spoon, and several other small baggies consistent in the use of distributing narcotics.
Due to the large amount of narcotics being found inside the vehicle and all occupants denying ownership, Duncan and Herron were taken into custody along with Mr. Vigil. With the assistance of deputy Travis Henrie, Sgt. Ronnie Bogdin, Wellington Police Captain, Chad Feichko and Price City Police Officer, Shawn Sackett, the inventory was completed and all three suspects were transported to the Carbon County Jail.
During the booking process at the Carbon County Jail, both Herron and Duncan were found to be in possession of illegal narcotics and paraphernalia that were consistent with the items located inside of the vehicle. After finishing the booking process, Deputy Addley completed an inventory of the narcotics that were located inside the vehicle that included 25.7 grams of field-tested Methamphetamine, 11.5 grams of suspected “Brown” Heroin and .7 grams of suspected “Black Tar” Heroin.
Vigil, Duncan and Herron were all booked into the Carbon County Jail on the following charges: Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Heroin with Intent to Distribute, and Possession of Paraphernalia. Duncan and Herron were also booked on the additional charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Correctional Facility. All charges will be screened by the Carbon County Attorney.
