Payson Police Make Star Valley Bust


A former Payson resident, already arrested on drug charges once this year, was arrested in Star Valley Friday.

The Payson Police Department served a search warrant on Walters Lane at about 7 a.m., Friday, May 23. Two people were taken into custody.

Katherine Michelle Bennett, 44, was arrested for possession of dangerous drugs for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.

David Eric Mikulak, 32, was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.

The warrant was issued following a year-long investigation.

Bennett was arrested in January, following an eight-month investigation. The investigation leading to the May 23 warrant, was a continuation of that effort.

"We believe she attempted to allude us with the move to Star Valley (from Payson). And the drugs were coming back into Payson," Lt. Don Engler said.
