Utah County Major Crimes officers served a search warrant at a trailer park on north State Street in Orem, according to police reports. Police say as they searched the home of the trailer park manager, Helena Avila, 54, they found a small amount of white crystal substance, later field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Police reports also state they found several pills, including hydrocodone, in a pill bottle by her bed. She did not have a prescription for any of these pills.

Police also found several items of paraphernalia around the house, including packaging materials and pipes, according to their reports.

Reports further state that Avila told the officers she had been using her office, attached to her trailer, to sell methamphetamine. According to police reports, she said she would also receive phone calls from people who wanted to buy meth, and then she would contact a dealer, who could use her bedroom as a selling facility, complete with scales and packaging equipment. She told police she would get a little meth for “her trouble,” according to police reports.

While the warrant was being served and Avila was being questioned, Jeffery Rouse arrived at the residence. According to police reports, Avila was allowing Rouse, 53, to live in a bedroom in her residence for months as long as he would pay rent. As they searched his room, they found methamphetamine and a glass pipe, which he told police was his. Police reports also state he bought meth from Avila before.

Forensic testing revealed that Avila tested positive for methamphetamine at the time of her arrest. She was arrested within 1000 feet of a strip mall, making the area a drug free zone.

Avila was booked on one charge of distribution of methamphetamine, a first-degree felony, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony and a class A misdemeanor, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.

Rouse was booked on one charge of possession of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.
