Price City Police Press Release
On July 8, Price City Police detectives made two arrests related to a recent string of burglaries.
Thomas Jeffery Ward, 30, of Price was booked into the Carbon County Jail on charges of possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia (all drug counts with a drug free zone enhancement), seven counts of business burglary and seven counts of felony level criminal mischief. The drug possession charges are second degree felonies and the burglary charges are third degree felonies.
Nicole Ann Greene (a.k.a. Sanchez), 26, of East Carbon was arrested and booked on a 72-hour hold through Adult Probation and Parole.
As detectives investigated the case, information came to light allegedly implicating Ward in the crime spree. Price City Detective Sergeant Brandon Sicilia and detectives Chris Pugliese and Dan Burke, along with Adult Probation and Parole Agent Sam Bowman, contacted Thomas Ward at his Price residence. Ward allegedly possessed the listed drug items, as well as property from at least seven documented business burglaries.
As a result of this contact, detectives put out an all points bulletin to locate Ward’s girlfriend, Greene. Greene was located later that evening in Duchesne and arrested by Adult Probation and Parole Agents there. Detectives Pugliese and Burke retrieved Greene from the Duchesne County Jail and booked her at the Carbon County Jail where she is being held on the 72-hour hold. Greene was allegedly in possession of stolen property from the burglaries.
The investigation is still ongoing and as details are pieced together, it is anticipated that additional charges will be made. Upon receiving all of the cases, the Carbon County Attorney’s Office will review the information for determination of appropriate formal charges.
