SALT LAKE CITY — A Weber County man had has first court appearance last week in a case stemming from a December death linked to fentanyl he allegedly sold.

According to a press release from the United States Attorney’s Office District of Utah, a U.S. magistrate judge ordered Cullin Anthony Bullen, 37, of Roy, “to remain in custody following the alleged (sale) of fentanyl laced pills that led to the death of another person.”

Bullen is charged with distribution of fentanyl resulting in death and had his initial appearance Wednesday at the United States District Courthouse in downtown Salt Lake City.

The press release also gives some background on his case.

“According to court documents, Cullin Anthony Bullen, 37, of Roy, Utah, was contacted on December 19, 2023, by the victim in a death resulting drug case. As alleged, the victim … purchased ‘roxies,’ which is slang for Roxicodone prescription pills. Bullen purchased 25-30 pills from a third individual for $20 each. Bullen then sold the ‘roxies’ to the victim for $25 per pill. On December 20, 2023, the victim was found dead. The medical examiner’s preliminary report determined the cause of the victim’s death was fentanyl intoxication.”

Bullen was indicted by a federal grand jury May 8.

Dating to 2009, he has multiple felony and misdemeanor convictions in Utah district court, mostly for drug-related charges.
