Payson police officers served an early morning search warrant Sunday that resulted in an arrest and the recovery of five grams of methamphetamine.
The department's Special Response Team went to a residence on South Colcord Road after receiving information that there was drug activity taking place.
"We served the search warrant shortly before 7 a.m.," Payson Police Lt. Don Engler said.
Jesus Manuel Lara-Cesena, 23, was arrested for possession of dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Engler said Lara-Cesena did not have enough meth to be charged with drug sales.
"He wasn't over the threshold amount ..." Engler said.
Lara-Cesena was booked into jail and remains in custody.
