RICHFIELD, Utah — What started as a search warrant for stolen items from a Richfield man’s car, ended as a large-scale drug bust and seizure of several illegally owned weapons.

The victim blamed the burglary on the fact that he didn’t lock his car. Police found no signs of forced entry on the car.

Someone stole a toolbox, speaker and an iPhone from the victim’s car on Sunday. The victim was able to ping the location of his phone, resulting in a potential suspect’s address.

The police got a search warrant for the address on Tuesday, Oct. 11. 

According to an affidavit of arrest, upon entering the home, police detained the suspect, 41-year-old Jeffery Stephen Daniels.

Immediately following, police found a syringe of what appeared to be heroin in Daniels’s front pocket.  

Along with the discovery of the victim’s toolbox, police found more than 10 illegally owned guns and several drugs and paraphernalia throughout Daniels’s house. 

Besides the used and loaded syringes of heroin, police found ziplock bags of crystal meth, a Sevier County EMS bag of medication and tools, Adderall, Ritalin, muscle relaxers, pain relievers, anabolic steroids and narcotics. 

The police arrested Daniels on felony charges without bail as they believe his release would cause danger to individuals.
