Second hiker arrested after Spring Hollow rescue

LOGAN — The second hiker rescued last week along the Spring Hollow Trail in Logan Canyon, US 89, has been booked into the Cache County Jail.

Andrea Price was booked into jail Monday afternoon. The 46-year-old transient is being held on second-degree felony drug possession charges.

Price and 18-year-old Amy Cheney of Lewiston were found by hikers along the Spring Hollow Trail, Wednesday morning. The two claimed to have been stranded for three days, after getting their truck stuck in snow, above Right Hand Fork Canyon.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Doyle Peck said when Search and Rescue crews located the two women they showed signs of being under the influence of drugs. There were also inconsistencies in their story about being stranded.

Cheney was able to hike out with the help of rescuers and was arrested after being checked by physicians. Price had to be transported out on a cart by rescuers. She was taken by ambulance to Logan Regional Hospital. She was arrested after being released.

The truck was located above the White’s Bedding Ground area, up Right Hand Fork Canyon. It was impounded late Wednesday afternoon.
