Comments Off on Mexican police arrest Layton couple after high-speed chase on Meth charges

SALT LAKE CITY — A Layton couple has been arrested by Mexican authorities following a high-speed chase, officials with the U.S. Marshals Service said.

Jacquiline Jean Randall, 35, and Lorin Davison Fiene, 40, were arrested Monday in Mexico about 100 miles away from the U.S. border, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bobby Arnes.

Arnes said the two were indicted by a federal grand jury in October on drug charges.

According to court documents, both have been indicted on two counts of possession of methamphetamine and one count of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. No court date has been set.

Arnes said his office, along with Davis Metro Narcotics Strike Force, received leads that the couple had fled the area shortly after they were indicted. His office later learned the two were in Mexico and contacted Mexican authorities.

The two are now in a federal prison in San Diego, waiting to be extradited to Utah.

Besides the federal charges, the two also have warrants for their arrests out of 2nd District Court.

Randall has no-bail bench warrants out of Ogden and Farmington for failing to appear for court hearings set in October.

Fiene has a no-bail bench warrant out of Farmington for failing to appear for a hearing in October.

The two were arrested in September by the Davis Metro Narcotics Strike Force. They were each charged with three counts of first-degree felony distribution of methamphetamine, one count of second-degree felony possession of oxycodone, one count of class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana and one count of class B misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The pair lived in a house 800 feet away from a church, which enhanced the charges because it is a drug-free zone, according to court documents.

Randall had been released from Davis County Jail on $50,000 bail shortly after her arrest in September. She had two cases pending in 2nd District Court in Ogden and one case pending in Farmington, according to court documents.

She pleaded guilty July 31 in Ogden to third-degree felony possession of a controlled substance, according to the court website.

A sentencing hearing had been set for Oct. 9 in Ogden, which she did not attend.

In the second Ogden case, she has been charged with two counts of third-degree felony receiving stolen property and two counts of class A misdemeanor theft by receiving stolen property.

According to court documents, Randall was seen on a surveillance tape, dated May 17, pulling a trailer with ATVs stolen in Clearfield and Layton into a storage unit in Weber County.

She was also arrested by Davis County Sheriff’s Office on April 22. After she was pulled over for a traffic violation, a drug dog indicated drugs were in the car, and Randall admitted to having marijuana. Officers searched her car and found meth and Xanax, according to a probable cause statement. She was charged with third-degree felony possession of methamphetamine, as well as possession of Xanax, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended or revoked license and operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock system, all class B misdemeanors.
