A Roosevelt man has been given the maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, after he was discovered to be in possession of multiple stolen goods, as well as crystal methamphetamine in his home this past July. Travis Kirk Cook, 35, was sentenced to three concurrent sentences for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, theft by receiving stolen property, and burglary.
The charges stem from when Cook's home was searched by deputies with the Duchesne County Sheriff's Office and found a large quantity of stolen goods. The goods ranged in rarity, value, and size, but almost all of them were being sold either on Facebook or Ebay by the couple. Additionally police found a "baseball size" quantity of meth near Cook after he attempted to flee the residence.
Cook accepted a plea deal in September in exchange for the charges from seven other cases against him being dropped, including charges related to the stolen items. He has agreed to pay full restitution to the victims.
