SALT LAKE CITY — A United Fire Authority employee has filed a motion to suppress evidence he believes was unlawfully gathered and in violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Paramedic Ryan Pyle was charged with prescription fraud after an investigation into missing morphine led a Cottonwood Heights police detective to search medical records as part of his investigation.

“Nobody was ever charged with the theft of the morphine,” legal director of the ACLU of Utah John Mejia said. “That was not the basis for the charges against that paramedic. He was charged with suspected prescription fraud.”
