ST. GEORGE – Officers arrested a Colorado couple on multiple drug charges after the couple was found sleeping in their car in Slick Rock Park, 2395 E Riverside Drive.
Officer Johnny Heppler said the couple had covered their windows with clothing, but an officer could see them sleeping inside. He said the officer detected a strong odor of burnt marijuana and upon a search of the vehicle, found marijuana, cocaine, drug paraphernalia, an open container and a knife.
Heppler said the charges were enhanced because they were in a drug free zone. He said one of the suspects had been arrested in Washington County in April on drug charges, as well.
