Police found a machete, guns, ammunition and hundreds of pill bottles in a Layton shed after arresting a teenager suspected of fatally shooting someone over the sale of phony marijuana, according to a search warrant affidavit.
On the afternoon of Nov. 21, the teen, 17-year-old Seth JD Carreras, went to 19-year-old Hunter Woodson’s Sunset home, intending to buy marijuana from him, according to court documents.
Woodson instead sold him “spices.” Carreras allegedly shot him multiple times with a 9mm handgun and fled.
Carreras was subsequently charged as an adult in 2nd District Court with first-degree felony murder.
Police arrested Carreras about 30 minutes after the shooting after officers saw him crawl under a car in the driveway of his Layton home. While searching the property where Carreras lives, police found the shed.
When officers opened the door of the shed, they found a male sitting on a chair, holding a sword, according to the search warrant affidavit. The male dropped the sword and police took him into custody.
A deputy reported there were “hundreds” of bottles of pills on a shelf in the shed, as well as scales and “marijuana shake” on the floor. Between the shed and the cars in the driveway, police also found knives, guns, ammunition and two machetes — one in the shed and one in a car, the search warrant states.
According to the search warrant, Woodson’s girlfriend was with Woodson when he was shot and killed. She reported the shooting to police, saying Woodson had been shot in the arm and abdomen, and also identified the alleged shooter.
Woodson died from the gunshot wounds at the Sunset home where he lived with his grandfather, according to Sunset Police Chief Ken Eborn.
