WEST POINT – With the help of Davis County Sheriff’s K-9 officer Hasko, deputies arrested a man who allegedly had “a distribution amount of meth,” in his car on Saturday.

Officers arrested Joel Craig Parkinson, 35, on one count of suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a restricted person, possession of drug paraphernalia and speeding.

Officers  pulled Parkinson over on a traffic stop for traveling “double the speed limit,” at 4000 W. 300 North in West Point about 2 p.m., according to Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen

“There were suspicions of a potential for drugs in or on the person,” Poulsen said. Deputies called in the K-9 unit to confirm their suspicions. Officers found 9 grams of methamphetamine, a .22-caliber handgun and more than $1,000 in cash. “Hasko’s been out in the field for a while and has had several drug busts, but northing like this,” Poulsen said. “It was a good drug bust.”
