RE: Felony Drug Arrest
Last Sunday evening (Mar. 12), Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies made a traffic stop on a vehicle involved in an ongoing drug investigation near 49th N. and Ammon Rd. The vehicle was stopped at approximately 8:30pm and Deputies identified the driver as 36 year old William Brian Thomson, and a passenger 25 year old Tamya Louise King. As Deputies were speaking with Mr. Thomson outside of the vehicle he attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended in a nearby irrigation ditch. Both Thomson and King were detained while Deputies searched the vehicle after obtaining a search warrant.
During the search Deputies located a variety of illegal drugs that included approximately 106 grams of Methamphetamine, over a thousand “dirty thirty” Fentanyl pills weighing approximately 170 grams, approximately 12 grams of Marijuana, and .2 grams of Cocaine. Deputies also seized approximately 38 grams of a substance also believed to be a synthetic Opioid containing Fentanyl and several items of drug paraphernalia. While Ms. King was detained, she admitted to Deputies she was in possession of drug paraphernalia located on the ground where she exited the vehicle and attempted to get rid of it.
King was transported to the Bonneville County Jail where she was booked for Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Thomson was also booked into jail on multiple Felony counts of Drug Trafficking and Possession of a Controlled Substance and Misdemeanors for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Resisting Arrest.
Deputies are continuing to investigate, and no further information is available.
