Park City police arrested a man for 12 counts of drug possession on Thursday.

According to probable cause statements, police served a warrant on the home of Robert Page Morris Whyte, 34, on Nov. 11. Police discovered in Whye's bedroom two plastics bags of heroin, three bags of methamphetamine, and various prescription drug containers with other names listed or with other medications inside that were not listed on the bottle. Small pieces of paper were also found in the bedroom, and Whyte admitted these papers were LSD after having his Miranda rights read to him. Police also discovered various containers of marijuana in Whyte's bedroom and throughout the house along with various drug-related paraphernalia.

There were also indicators that Whyte was distributing narcotics to other individuals, such as owning pay-owe sheets and large amounts of plastic bags and syringes, and he admitted to authorities under Miranda that he provided narcotics to five or six other individuals.

Whyte is booked into the Summit County Sheriff's Office with 10 counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of possession with the intent to distribute the substance, and one count of use or possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the PC statement.

Individuals charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
