KPCW news
An arrest was made by Summit County Sheriff's Deputies at this Wanship home Thursday.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office made the arrest Thursday morning.

Some Wanship residents woke up to a slew of law enforcement vehicles parked outside a home Thursday on the corner of Funny Ave. and S.R. 32.

According to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, a three-month long investigation ended with a 26-year-old mother’s arrest on multiple charges, including two counts of child endangerment.

Detectives found methamphetamine, marijuana, and multiple guns. The woman is on a restricted persons list and is therefore not allowed to possess firearms.

Two children were removed from the home and Child and Family Services were called to help with their care and safety.

A Wanship resident who wished to remain anonymous said many residents in the area have been concerned about the house and the safety of the children for, “a long time.”

The woman was booked into Summit County jail on possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, six counts of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, and two counts of child endangerment.

Andrea moved to Park City in 2017 with two huskies, two kids and one husband… not in that order. Prior to working at KPCW, she spent decades in the entertainment industry – and racked up a few awards in the process for her work on “Behind the Music” and most recently for a film she produced for Lifetime, “Somebody’s Child: The Regina Louise Story.” She was featured on “Good Morning America” twice for her books which made best sellers lists in Dallas and Denver. She’s still hoping to write one that hits The New York Times list. She loves taking photos, loves the mountains, especially the fall, and is excited to be working with the amazing team at KPCW.
