SAFFORD — A woman who had her friend pick up a drug test kit from Walmart early Tuesday morning had some items of hers tested by the police instead and ended up with a free ride to jail.

Chalise Gracie Moreno, 22, of Safford, was arrested and booked into the Graham County Jail on a warrant and charges of possession of a narcotic drug (heroin), possession of a dangerous drug (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia. Moreno also received a charge of unlawful flight from law enforcement for failing to pull over when an officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop.

Moreno’s passenger, Dawnyea Monique Luna, 25, of Clifton, was arrested and booked into the jail on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Luna is already currently being prosecuted for possession of a dangerous drug (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to a Safford Police report, an officer first noticed the pair when Luna sprang from Moreno’s car and into the Walmart at 755 S. 20th Ave. a little after midnight. The officer noticed Moreno kept her vehicle running during Luna’s time in the store and believed a theft might transpire.

When Luna returned to the vehicle, the officer followed the pair as they traveled south than east, eventually ending up eastbound on Lonestar Road. At that point, the officer received information that Moreno had an active warrant and attempted to make a traffic stop. Moreno failed to yield, however, and continued east even though the officer had his lights and siren activated.

Moreno eventually turned onto Montierth Lane and pulled over at a residence in the 2500 block. Multiple officers than ordered the occupants out of the vehicle at gunpoint and took them into custody.

An officer soon located a Marlboro cigarette pack that contained aluminum foil with burnt drug residue and cut straws with drug residue. The items were claimed by Luna, who said she had recently relapsed into using heroin again, according to the police report.

An officer also located a piece of tissue paper on the floor of the car that had a plastic baggie with methamphetamine in it and a piece of aluminum foil with some black tar heroin inside. Moreno claimed the items and said she originally hid the tissue paper in her bra and didn’t know how it fell to the floor, according to the police report. She also advised that the pair had gone to Wal-Mart to purchase a drug test kit and that she didn’t initially pull over for the officer because she knew she had a warrant and didn’t want to go back to jail.

Both suspects were than booked into the jail without further incident.
