The typical scenario that results in charges with intent to distribute involves out of state travelers.  The Utah Highway Patrol is always on the lookout for out of state vehicles traveling on Utah’s interstates and highways to see if they fit the profile, that Utah law enforcement has concocted, of someone who is likely traveling with controlled substances.  The law enforcement officer will use any reason possible to pull you over, such as going one mile an hour over the speed limit and then try to find any reason to search your vehicle.  If such situations if a controlled substance in large quantities is found in the vehicle you will be charged with possession with intent to distribute.
