FARMINGTON -- Two Layton residents are facing multiple felony charges after Davis Metro Narcotics Strike Force officials say they found illegal drugs and numerous fake identification cards in the couple's home.
Danielle Rae Kennington, 27, and Alec Jason Thomas, 32, appeared Friday in 2nd District Court.
Kennington is charged with three first-degree felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute; 10 third-degree felony counts of forgery; and one class A misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Thomas is charged with two first-degree felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute; 10 third-degree felony counts of forgery; and one class A misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both are being held in Davis County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Davis Metro Narcotics Strike Force Lt. Mark Chatlin said his agency received a complaint several weeks ago about prescription fraud.
Officers spent the next two weeks investigating the case and, at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, stopped the car the couple was in and served a search warrant.
The couple was then taken to their home, where officers found heroin, methadone and oxycodone. They also found at least two dozen fake Utah driver's licenses, plus fake prescriptions, according to court documents.
Their home is within 1,000 feet of Mountain View Elementary School, which is a drug-free zone, Chatlin said.
"We're still investigating the case because there is quite a bit of evidence we're going through," he said.
Deputy Davis County Attorney Rick Westmoreland said the evidence includes a computer, a printer and a scanner used to make the fake driver's licenses and prescriptions.
Chatlin said officers don't know if Kennington and Thomas are part of a larger operation.
