State v. Candelario

In State v. Candelario, 909 P.2d 277, 279 (Utah Ct. App. 1995), the court of appeals affirmed a firearm enhancement, reasoning that even though the defendant did not use an actual firearm, "the plain meaning of the phrase 'the representation of a dangerous weapon' requires that courts apply the firearm enhancement if a defendant makes a verbal or a nonverbal statement that he possesses a firearm."
