A former employee of USU Eastern and graduate of the nursing program was booked into Carbon County Jail on March 3 for possession of methamphetamine, a second-degree felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a class B misdemeanor.
Jessica Tawn Jarvis, 34, of Carbon County, was heard arguing in the Greenwell Motel with Jason Jered Jaimez, 37, of Helper, about 11 p.m. According to a Price city press release, police were dispatched to the hotel where a man and woman were having an argument that caused annoyance. The hotel room was registered in Jarvis’ name.
According to the Sun Advocate, police discovered drug paraphernalia and more than 10 grams of methamphetamine on Jaimez. The Greenwell is within what police consider a drug-free zone where both were arrested and taken to jail.
Jaimez told police officers that the drugs were his. He was also booked into jail for offenses including possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, a second-degree felony; and possession of paraphernalia, a class B misdemeanor.
While in jail, Jaimez allegedly admitted he was the person who dealt Heroin that a man overdosed on in December 2013, according to a Price city press release. He was booked separately for distribution of a controlled substance (Heroin), a first-degree felony; and manslaughter, a second-degree felony.
