Comments Off on Nervous flatulating woman, Chanele Pauley, 33, blows her Christmas Methamphetamine cover in Rogers County, Oklahoma

Holiday travel sucks. Then again, so does trying to give all your relatives bags of meth. A 33-year-old named Chanele Pauley was fairly close to doing just that before she was pulled over in Rogers County, Oklahoma, earlier this week.

NY Daily News reports that Pauley blew her cover by passing gas and breathing heavily, presumably chanelepauley-640x423because her anxiety was about to asphyxiate her. She also had a super-lame partner in crime who couldn’t agree on where they were going. Dude said they were driving to North Carolina, Pauley claimed they were en route to Missouri, and unless they were going off a magic meth map that was drawn by Ben Carson, both were damn conflicted about their destination.

Deputy Scotty Moree was initially going to let Pauley off with a warning after he’d pulled her over because it’s the holidays™, but chick was so panicked that he had to take action. A drug-sniffing police dog led Moree to a stack of wrapped presents that turned out to be lots of meth. All told, Pauley was hauling over eight pounds of drugs to wherever the hell it is she and her passenger were going.

Pauley was arrested and continued passing gas in the cop car. Her PIC, Walter Rawls, was also detained but reportedly far less gassy. The two now face drug trafficking charges.

Comments Off on Whatcom County Sheriff’s Deputies raid Samish Way Motel 6 motel room, arrest Kasandra Cruz, 28, and Larry Lee Major, 42, on Methamphetamine drug charges

BELLINGHAM — Deputies investigating a robbery conspiracy ended up busting two people at a Samish Way motel for possession of methamphetamine and stolen credit cards, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop on a man who had several outstanding warrants early Tuesday morning, Dec. 22. The driver was arrested, but he tipped the deputies off about a home invasion robbery planned for a house on East Smith Road.

According to the driver, whose name was not released by the sheriff’s office, a man named Larry Lee Major, 42, planned a robbery at the house on Smith Road. The occupants of that house, the driver said, had large quantities of meth.

The man told deputies that Major was staying in a room at the Motel 6 on Samish Way, and that it was a spot where he and others used meth. Major, he told deputies, had a handgun, stolen credit cards and a stolen passport in the room. He said a woman named Kasandra Cruz, 28, also was in the room while the robbery was being discussed, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies got a search warrant for the room where Major and Cruz were reportedly staying. Major tried to escape the motel on Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said, but was taken into custody along with Cruz.

Deputies found a small quantity of meth, a scale with residue, pipes used to smoke meth, stolen credit cards and a passport. Major and Cruz were booked into jail on suspicion of four counts possession of stolen property in the second degree and possession of methamphetamine. No handgun was found.

The robbery investigation is ongoing, the sheriff’s office said.

In March 2014, Major was sentenced to more than three years in prison for first-degree robbery and reckless driving. He was released from prison earlier this month, on Dec. 7. Charges from that case state Major, in July 2013, held a gun to a man’s head and hit him with the barrel while he and others stole money and marijuana from the house.

As part of his sentence, Major was put on Department of Corrections probation for 18 months following his release from prison.

Cruz has convictions of forgery, first-degree criminal impersonation and unlawful delivery of meth.

Comments Off on Sarah Fitzgerald, of Wellston, Arrested For Making Methamphetamine

After months of investigation the SSCENT drug team arrested a Wellston woman for making meth.

The drug team started investigating Sarah Fitzgerald in October of this year.9516831_G

Detectives learned that Fitzgerald was involved in making meth at a home in Norman Township.

Fitzgerald was arraigned Tuesday for aid and deliver, manufacturing meth.

Fitzgerald was on probation for a prior controlled substance charge at the time of her arrest.

GULFPORT — A Texas woman has admitted supplying crystal meth, or ice, for sales in Harrison County in one of three related drug-trafficking cases, including one that involved shipments of meth hidden in ice coolers.

Rachel Esparza Saenz, 50, of Webster, pleaded guilty Friday to a meth-trafficking charge in a Drug Enforcement Administration investigation.BI_bilo_1224_rachel%20esparza

She faces up to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute meth in May and June. She will be sentenced March 22.

Crystal meth is meth in its purest form.

DEA agents identified her after Harrison County deputies stopped a vehicle May 19 on a littering violation. Court papers show two men in the vehicle had a black bag containing a pound of meth, and a small bag of meth and a pipe concealed in a flashlight.

The men said a woman named “Poca” or “Pocahantas” sold them the meth earlier that day at Shady Glen Motel in Channelview, Texas, a DEA agent’s criminal complaint said. One of the men remembered the motel room number.

Court papers show undercover police in Houston raided the motel room later that day, seizing meth and crack cocaine and arresting Saenz.

A federal grand jury indicted Saenz on June 23.

Two delivered ice

In a related indictment, Joseph W. Moran Jr., 38, of Saucier, and James D. Byrd, 51, of Vancleave, have each pleaded guilty to interstate travel in aid of drug racketeering enterprises.

Court papers say they were the men in the littering traffic stop that led drug agents to Saenz. Officials said security cameras at the motel where Saenz was arrested show Moran and Byrd leaving the hotel with the bag of meth they were found within Harrison County.

Moran and Byrd each face up to five years in prison. They will be sentenced Jan. 28.

‘Ice’ in coolers

Another indictment, filed Dec. 8, accuses James Michael “Jimmy” Robinson, 35, in a related meth-trafficking conspiracy. He’s suspected of delivering more than 10 pounds of crystal meth from California to Harrison County from summer 2014 and throughout this year.

A criminal complaint alleges that, on one trip, Joseph Moran used a van rented in D’Iberville to take money to Los Angeles to buy several pounds of crystal meth hidden in ice coolers. Pictures provided by an unidentified source allegedly show Robinson holding meth and the coolers.

Robinson was arrested in his vehicle Sept. 29 at the Albuquerque International Airport, where he allegedly was found with meth hidden in the side walls of a cooler. He also was wanted in Harrison County on a meth charge.

Robinson is set for trial on a court calendar that starts Jan. 25.

Comments Off on Missoula Super 8 motel murder suspect, Scott Austin Price, 37, says Methamphetamine fueled attacks; accomplice, Sarah Rae McKnight, 32, provides details

MISSOULA — A man with white supremacist ties who’s charged with murders 500 miles apart in Montana told investigators he was on methamphetamine when he stabbed a Missoula motel housekeeper to death Monday.

Warrants were issued Thursday in Missoula County for the arrests of Scott Austin Price, 37, and Sarah Rae McKnight, 32, who’ve been in custody in Kootenai County jail in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, since Tuesday.567c816601ebe_image

McKnight told detectives she was Price’s accomplice in knife attacks that left 56-year-old Lonette Keehner dead in a room at the Super 8 motel on Brooks Street and another Missoula woman wounded in the parking lot of the Missoula Fresh Market nearby.

Price was identified by authorities as a transient from Billings. McKnight’s arrest warrant said her last known residence was on Marten Creek Road in Trout Creek.

Both face five felony charges and $1 million bail in Missoula County.

Price was also charged Thursday in the Dec. 14 stabbing death of 78-year-old Ed Martin in Miles City. He’d previously been charged with the assault and kidnapping of Martin’s wife, who was found beaten and locked in the basement.

Missoula County Attorney Kirsten Pabst said Thursday warrants from other jurisdictions complicate extradition and she didn’t know yet when Price and McKnight will appear in Missoula.

“The Missoula police did a great investigation under extreme time constraints to bring these two to justice,” Pabst said in an email. “The MPD worked cooperatively and efficiently with several other law enforcement jurisdictions to track these offenders and facilitate the arrests.”

According to Missoula County complaints filed in justice court by Pabst and Chief Deputy County Attorney Jason Marks, Price has confessed to killing Keehner.

“He attributed his actions to his methamphetamine use,” the complaint said. “He was unclear about what he had done in the Fresh Market parking lot but did admit to striking a woman while holding a knife in his hand.”

McKnight provided Missoula detectives with an unsettling story of events leading up to and after Keehner’s murder.

According to charging documents, she said she’d met Price in Great Falls last week while she was there for an appearance in federal court.

“It was her understanding that Price was on the run after committing a murder in Miles City,” the complaint said. “She knew Price through her husband and, according to their presence on social media, all claimed white supremacist ties.”

McKnight said both she and Price were “regularly using methamphetamine through the ensuing events.”

The two drove McKnight’s dark-colored Honda to Missoula, where they determined they needed money and a more reliable vehicle. McKnight said they bought duct tape and zip ties with intentions to kidnap someone with a vehicle they wanted to steal. They planned to force their victim to disclose personal identification numbers for any debit cards they might have.

Their first attempt was in the parking lot of Fresh Market, formerly Safeway, on South Reserve Street. The unidentified victim told Missoula police she had finished shopping and putting her groceries in her car. A man later identified as Price was standing by the Honda, which was parked next to the woman’s vehicle.

When she walked around to the driver’s side door, Price was partially blocking her way. The woman told police she said “excuse me” and Price moved out of her way. When seated in the car she turned to her right to place her purse on the passenger seat.

“When she turned back around, Price was standing at her door,” the complaint read. “He then began stabbing her in the abdomen with a knife.”

The victim said she didn’t remember Price saying anything before he stabbed her. She screamed at him to stop and offered him her purse, thinking he was trying to rob her. But he got into the passenger side of the Honda. As the car slowly drove off, the wounded woman stepped from her vehicle and tried to read the license plate. She screamed for help and another female was able to take a photo of the Honda.

The victim, identified in charging papers as Jane Doe, was stabbed in the stomach above the diaphragm and also had two defensive stab wounds on her left hand. She was hospitalized and has since been released.

McKnight told detectives she was driving the Honda. She hadn’t heard Price’s exchange with the woman but knew that he’d stabbed her then got into McKnight’s car with a bloody knife and “told her to drive.”

They crossed Brooks Street and parked behind the Super 8 motel then went inside looking for someone to rob in order to get a new car. They found Keehner cleaning a room and, according to the complaint, Price “physically assaulted Lonette and forced her to empty her pockets and describe her car.”

He took her car keys and hotel pass key, handed them to McKnight, and told her to open the door across the hall. Price forced Keehner into the other room as McKnight reassured a guest attracted by the noise that “everything was fine.”

She then went outside and transferred their belongings from the Honda to Keehner’s car. Price ran out of the motel, and they drove away in the stolen vehicle, identified by police as a red 2009 Chevy Malibu.

McKnight said Price told her he’d killed Keehner. As they drove through town, he threw a bloody knife out the window. Based on information provided by McKnight, the knife was recovered Wednesday by Missoula police on Stephens Avenue near its intersection with Franklin Street.

Price and McKnight were arrested in Idaho after a cooperative effort between Missoula and Coeur d’Alene police and the U.S. Marshals Service’s violent crime task forces from Montana, Idaho and Washington.

The Billings Gazette reported that Price has been sentenced for four felony convictions in Custer County. He was convicted of forgery and theft in February 1998, and criminal production or manufacture of dangerous drugs and theft in August 2013. The latter two sentences were partially suspended.

The Montana Department of Corrections’ Offender Network website describes Price as a 5-foot-9, 185-pound man with multiple tattoos, among them a skull, barbed wire, devil head and a “tribal design.” “Outlaw” is tattooed on his back, “Why” on his right arm, and “Try” on his left arm.

He faces felony charges in Missoula County of deliberate homicide, attempted deliberate homicide, conspiracy to commit aggravated kidnapping, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, and solicitation to commit a theft.

McKnight is not listed on the DOC offender website. She’s also charged with deliberate homicide and conspiracy to commit aggravated kidnapping, as well as accountability for deliberate homicide, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, and the theft of Keehner’s car.

Deliberate homicide, attempted deliberate homicide and accountability for attempted deliberate homicide are all punishable by not less than 10 or more than 100 years in Montana State Prison. A conviction of conspiracy to commit aggravated kidnapping carries a punishment of two to 100 years in prison.

Keehner had worked as a housekeeper at the Super 8 motel for 21 years, according to her obituary received Thursday by the Missoulian.

She grew up in Blackfoot, a small community near Browning, and received a degree in criminal justice from Dawson Community College in Glendive in 1983.

Keehner is survived by her husband of 28 years, Dave Keehner of Missoula, and three children. Services will be held Monday at 2 p.m. at Garden City Funeral Home.

Comments Off on Methamphetamine Arrests Break South Dakota State Record

PIERRE, SD – It is a record breaking year for meth arrests in South Dakota according to South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley.

Last year used to hold South Dakota’s record with arrest numbers a little above 1,500. Arrests through November of this year topped 1,900. Jackley expects the December arrests to bring the tally past 2,000.64699

Jackley says law enforcement found fewer labs this year and seized less meth, but arrests continue to rise.

“What that really is saying is that we’ve done a good job with some of the legislation and some of the work that we’re doing in addressing the manufacture and the distribution here in South Dakota, but we’re still having that personal use problem,” Jackley said.

Jackley points to the drug’s addictive nature, saying many of those arrested are repeat offenders.

Spink County Sheriff Kevin Schurch says he is not surprised to hear about the meth trend in South Dakota.

“It does not surprise me at all,” Schurch said. “The trend we’re seeing in Spink County goes along with the data statewide. Meth arrests are off the charts.”

Prosecutors across South Dakota have gone to county commissioners, even state lawmakers, asking for help fighting the problem.

Schurch says the burden on society and families extends beyond budgets. Two recent Spink County cases combined to directly impact ten kids.

“At this time of the Christmas season we should be celebrating with our family and friends and now we’ve got people going to the penitentiary for methamphetamine arrests, so I hope this trend goes down in 2016,” Schurch said.

Jackley wants to see more drug courts in South Dakota and other changes that could help drop meth use.

“It’s something that I think everybody agrees we need to address and some of that addressing is through the drug courts, proper treatment and perhaps a meth campaign here in South Dakota,” Jackley said.

“It’s going to take education. It’s going to take people taking a stand that in their community; methamphetamine use is not all right,” Schurch said.

Jackley says the South Dakota numbers are in line with national drug trends.

Comments Off on Neglected 2-year-old boy shut in room with heater on dies of hyperthermia while parents, Kathleen Peacock and Lucas Barnes, cook and use Methamphetamine in St. Charles

ST CHARLES, Mo. — A 2-year-old boy died in a home used as a methamphetamine lab after his parents left him alone in his room with a heater turned on – and didn’t check on him, police in Missouri said.Braydon Barnes

Braydon Barnes was put in his crib on a Friday and left unattended with a space heater on for more than 38 hours, St. Charles police said.

Both parents Kathleen Peacock and Lucas Barnes told police they had used methamphetamine recently. They told officers they had been manufacturing in the home the week preceding their son’s death.

The two were home all weekend as Braydon was shut in his room.Lucas R. Barnes and Kathleen M. Peacock

Peacock, who is currently pregnant, told police she heard Braydon make noises and knew that she should check on him but didn’t.

The space heater has no thermostat and does not turn off automatically.

It wasn’t until Sunday morning that the parents checked in on the boy, and found Braydon had died.

Paramedics said the child had been dead for some time.

Autopsy results revealed that Braydon was generally malnourished and thin. His cause of death was hyperthermia due to the extreme heat, which would have “caused extreme discomfort and difficulty breathing as he died.”

Hyperthermia is an elevated body temperature that happens when a body produces or absorbs more heat than it can release.

Both parents are facing criminal charges of child abuse that resulted in death, and of manufacturing a controlled substance in a residence where a child resides.

The living conditions inside the house were so poor, police declared it uninhabitable and have condemned the house.

Comments Off on Rogers County deputy discovers suspected Methamphetamine wrapped as Christmas presents in car trunk; Chanele Benita Pauley, 33, and Walter Gray Rawls, 43, of Arizona, arrested

A nervous driver led a sheriff’s deputy to discover more than 8 pounds of meth that was wrapped as Christmas presents in the trunk of a vehicle on Interstate 44 near Catoosa on Monday, an arrest report says.

Rogers County K9 Deputy Scotty Moree was driving east on I-44 east of 193rd East Avenue about 8:45 p.m. when he noticed that a white Toyota in front his patrol car did not signal properly before changing lanes, according to his report.Pauley

Moree pulled over the vehicle and talked to the driver, Chanele Benita Pauley, 33, of Arizona. He told Pauley the reason for the stop and told her he was going to write her only a warning, the report states.

He asked Pauley to sit in his patrol vehicle while a passenger, Walter Gray Rawls, 43, also of Arizona, stayed in the Toyota. Pauley seemed nervous while Moree asked her where she was coming from and where she was going, to which she replied Missouri, according to the report.

“Chanele was breathing very heavily and I could see the carotid artery in her neck. I observed Chanele to also be shaking,” Moree wrote in the report. She then started passing gas in his vehicle, he wrote.

“All these signs led me to believe Chanele was extremely nervous,” he wrote. “These signs are not seen while speaking with the general motoring public.”

When Moree questioned Rawls, he said the two were headed to North Carolina, according to the report.

Moree’s police dog, Jack, sniffed around the outside of the vehicle and alerted him to the odor of a controlled substance in the trunk, the report states.

Inside the trunk were four boxes wrapped in Christmas paper, along with a trash bag containing the plastic covering for wrapping paper, used tape, napkins and blue rubber gloves, according to the report.

Moree opened the boxes and found several air-tight bags of a white, crystalline substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine, the report states.

The weight of the confiscated drugs was 8.5 pounds, according to the report.

Pauley and Rawls were booked into the Rogers County Jail on a complaint of trafficking in illegal drugs, jail records indicate.

Comments Off on Amber Renee Dick, 35, of Clearfield, Sent to Pennsylvania State Prison for Making Synthetic Marijuana, Methamphetamine

CLEARFIELD – A Clearfield woman accused of making synthetic marijuana and methamphetamine pleaded guilty Friday during plea and sentencing court before Judge Paul E. Cherry.

Amber Renee Dick, 35, 615 W. Front St., Clearfield, an inmate of the jail, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession with intent to DICK-AMBER-R-240x300manufacture or distribute a designer drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of children. She was sentenced to nine months to three years in state prison.

Her probation on a previous criminal conspiracy/possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance case was revoked. For this she was sentenced to 90 days to three years in state prison. Her new sentence will run consecutive to this sentence giving her a total time of one to six years in prison.

Her attorney, Curtis Irwin, noted that she was sent to state prison for an evaluation for the Intermediate Punishment Program in August, but she decided she did not want to participate in that program. In October he filed a motion for reconsideration of sentence leading to her appearing in sentencing court again.

Prior to sentencing, Irwin did ask Cherry to consider making the two sentences concurrent with each other because the revocation was based on the new charges.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, probation officers received information in March that Dick, who is on probation, was manufacturing methamphetamine and K2 or synthetic marijuana at her home.

Police were advised that Dick’s 16-year-old son was also in the home and that she possibly possessed weapons. Officers stood by as the probation officials searched the residence and Dick submitted to a drug test.

Dick was taken into custody and transported to the jail for violating her probation. In an interview with police, Dick admitted to mixing substances to manufacture K2.

A lab report on the items determined there were traces of a synthetic cannabinoid in a pipe, a bag contained synthetic cannabinoid weighing 12.80 grams, residue found in a long glass tube was methamphetamine, five small bags contained 70.59 grams total of synthetic cannabinoid, and residue in a multi-colored tube was methamphetamine, as well as dihydrocodeinone and acetaminophen. Substances used to make K2 were also recovered.

Comments Off on Marie Forcia, 34, of Hudson, Wisconsin, and Lisa Marie Linderman, 32, of St. Paul, arrested for possession of Methamphetamine, stolen items

Two women in possession of drugs and an assortment of stolen items, including credit cards and high-priced jewelry, were arrested by a Wyoming police officer Dec. 10 following a traffic stop by the Shell gas station near Interstate 35.

Chisago County Attorney Janet Reiter said Christin Marie Forcia, 34, of Hudson, Wisconsin, and Lisa Marie Linderman, 32, of St. Paul, made their first court appearances Dec. 11 and were charged by criminal complaint with identity theft, financial transaction card fraud and possession of methamphetamine.

At 7:09 p.m. Dec. 10, a Wyoming police officer observed a vehicle traveling eastbound on East Viking Boulevard in the right-turn lane of the road. From that lane, the vehicle could have turned into the Shell gas station or onto Kettle River Boulevard. The vehicle turned back into the traffic lane without signaling, and then proceeded to turn onto I-35 without signaling.

The officer tailed the vehicle, ran its license plate and learned the driver’s license of the vehicle’s registered owner had been revoked.

The officer performed a traffic stop on the vehicle. The driver, Forcia, told the officer she was not the owner of the vehicle and did not have a driver’s license. The passenger, Linderman, said she did not have a valid driver’s license, either.

The officer noted Linderman “appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance; she appeared lethargic and confused.”

Forcia said she was unaware if the vehicle had insurance and that she had borrowed it from someone named “Tom.”

She continued that she and Linderman were driving back from Hinckley after “picking up some stuff for a friend.”

She then motioned to several duffle backs in the back seat of the car. She said she did not know what was in the bags.

The officer asked both women if they had illegal substances in the vehicle.

Linderman said she had a pipe and showed the officer the device, telling him that she used it to smoke methamphetamine.

Forcia produced a glass pipe from her purse in a white case. The pipe contained a clear, crystalized substance. Both pipes field tested positive for methamphetamine.

An initial search of the vehicle revealed a compact burning torch near the center console, a digital scale in the backseat, expensive designer watches, diamond earrings, rings, necklaces, multiple cellphones, phone chargers, memory cards, a wooden club and a shank.

The search further revealed eight credit or debit cards, each bearing a different individual’s name.

Comments Off on Suspected Methamphetamine found in Fairmont Hot Springs Resort hotel room west of Butte

Butte-Silver Bow police are investigating the recovery of about a quarter ounce of suspected methamphetamine from a room in the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort west of Butte.

The 5.1 grams inside a plastic bag and valued at about $200, were found in an ice bucket in a hotel room Monday afternoon by cleaning staff, according to Undersheriff George Skuletich.

Police officers had responded earlier for a report of two guests — a man and woman — who refused to leave their room at check-out time.

Although the hotel registry indicated the woman was from Yellowstone County, the undersheriff said the names they gave to police showed residence in Kalispell.

The man and woman were not wanted by police and voluntarily left the room.

While the hotel cleaning staff tidied the room, the suspected meth and a torch lighter were discovered, Skuletich said.

The total amount of suspected methamphetamine weighed just under ½ ounce valued at $3000.00. Agents also collected a rifle and handgun located in the residence.

Bryant was taken into custody without incident and charged with possession to Distribute CDS II (Methamphetamine), possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Illegal Carry of Weapons with Drugs. He was transported to the Rapides Parish Detention Center where he was later released on $13,000 bond.

Julie Enlow was found in possession of drug paraphernalia and released with a citation.

"When the officers explained that she had given them her driving licence just half an hour before she swore and when she was arrested she didn’t seem at all surprised." Muellerova was taken back to the police station where she was given a standard drug test. The police spokesman said: "She was heavily under the influence of meths and admitted she had taken the drug.

Life imitating porn: In one of her adult films, 25-year-old Muellerova played a woman who is jailed

Muellerova had been asked to attend her local police station after earlier being caught on CCTV driving whilst banned.

But although she turned up at the station, she allegedly changed her mind when spotted by police officers, and instead drove off.

Officers then jumped into their squad cars and gave chase as the 26-year-old sped off through the Czech capital.

The result was a high-speed chase, where the adult film performer reached speeds of up to 136 mph, before she was caught.

Comments Off on Colquitt County Jail nurse, Jennifer Gail Sanchez, 33, faces Methamphetamine drug charges

MOULTRIE — A Colquitt County Jail nurse was arrested on Friday after officers who searched her car based on an alert from a police dog found suspected drugs. Officers found suspected methamphetamine and marijuana in the vehicle as well as other contraband that is not allowed inside the facility, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Inv. Jerome Burgess said.5678c7a0a1618_image

Jennifer Gail Sanchez is employed by Colquitt Regional Medical Center and has worked at the jail providing medical care for inmates for more than a year.

“The canine hit on the car,” Burgess said. “It was a hard hit on the car, according to the canine (handler).”

The scent of the marijuana was sufficient for the less sensitive noses of humans to detect, he said.

Employees who park behind the facility’s guard line are subject to search at any time, Burgess said, but Sanchez also agreed to let officers look through the car.

“We found a package inside the vehicle that contained multiple illegal substances,” he said.

Police said the search turned up about a half ounce of suspected marijuana and one to two grams of suspected methamphetamine. Officers also located cigarette rolling papers, tobacco and cigarette lighters in the package.

Sanchez, 33, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent, possession of marijuana with intent and bringing contraband across guard lines.

Sanchez has been placed on unpaid leave pending the results of the investigation, a Colquitt Regional spokeswoman said on Monday.

Burgess said that the agency’s Drug Enforcement Team had received a tip that Sanchez was bringing contraband in to inmates. On Friday, after officers performed a sweep through the jail facilities checking inmate areas, they then checked all cars of employees parked at the time behind the jail guard line.

A dog also alerted to a second car during the investigation. A search turned up prescription medications in it for which the owner had valid prescriptions, Burgess said.

After finding the contraband the Sheriff’s Office turned the investigation over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The decision to call the state agency was made because nearly everyone at the jail is familiar with Sanchez.

“I thought it was a conflict for us to do our own investigation,” Burgess said. “We recognized — and talking to the administration they agreed — we should let an outside agency do the investigation because of the potential for conflict.”

The GBI has not finished its probe at this time.

“At the conclusion of the ongoing investigation it’s possible some more arrests will be made,” Burgess said.

Sanchez remained in jail as of midafternoon on Monday.

Comments Off on Pound of Methamphetamine found in Sarasota Sara Sea Resort hotel room lands Jennifer Heller and Yuri Stasiuk in jail

SARASOTA, Fla. — A routine drug bust led to the discovery of 473 grams of methamphetamine in a hotel room at the Sara Sea Resort in Sarasota.

According to a report issued by The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, suspect Yuri Stasiuk was 5678693abff44_imagearrested last Tuesday after Special Investigations Section Detectives found more than a pound of meth in his hotel room. He told detectives he was expecting a shipment that was being delivered to Jennifer Heller in Venice.

After conducting surveillance, detectives made an investigatory traffic stop on a truck Heller was riding in and a K9 alerted to the presence of narcotics. Heller was arrested for possession of a small amount of methamphetamine, and was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia after Corrections Deputies detected a glass drug pipe in her body cavity on the SecurPASS RadPRO Virtual Scanner when she was being booked into jail.

The following day detectives contacted the United States Postal Inspection Service to find out if the package was delivered to Heller at her Tampa Avenue address. It was not, so personnel located the package and detectives brought it to the Tampa Field Office until an Inspector could get a federal search warrant on the package. When the search warrant was obtained and executed detectives found close to a pound of methamphetamine inside.

Both Stasiuk and Heller were charged with Conspiracy to Traffic in Methamphetamine.

Comments Off on Brevard County child welfare manager, Cleopatra Price, 42, loses job over Methamphetamine and heroin trafficking drug arrest

A child-welfare case manager, charged with trafficking heroin and methamphetamine on the side, has been removed from her position, Florida Department of Children and Families officials confirmed today.

Cleopatra Price, 42, worked with Impower, a child-welfare organization that is subcontracted by Brevard Family Partnership to provide a range of services, from family counseling to adoption case reviews. Brevard Family Partnership is contracted out by the Department of Children and Families.

“She was a case worker and was working directly with families in some kind of capacity,” said Kristi Gray, DCF spokeswoman.

“This type of charge is absolutely unacceptable. These are people holding positions of trust. It is a disqualifying offense,” Gray said, adding that there is an appeals process that Price, who has not been convicted of the charges, can follow to fight for her job.

Price oversaw 17 cases involving children and families, including those seeking adoption and foster care, officials with Brevard Family Partnership reported to FLORIDA TODAY. Area officials with the non-635860331061489275-2015-00016434profit agency – which has helped hundreds of children find homes since its start 10 years ago – were also disturbed by the charges and are moving to ensure her cases are being handled by others.

“We are reviewing her cases. We’ll sit down and the case managers will go over all of her cases. Our overall concern is the children,” said Tracey Kinsley, spokeswoman for Brevard Family Partnership, an agency that oversees adoptions, foster care program and other social services for the state.

Price was removed from her $39,000 job after it was learned that Brevard County sheriff’s deputies carried out a search warrant of a home at 1354 Tarton Way in Central Brevard. The warrant was sworn out after a series of undercover drug buys involving heroin and cocaine involving Price, records show.

Price was charged with trafficking 56 grams of heroin, trafficking 30.5 grams of cocaine, and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell. Some of the drugs were found in her dresser drawer along with her clothing, three stolen handguns, eight Oxycodone pills and marijuana, records show. Officials say Price initially moved from a position with Devereux, another non-profit child-welfare agency, to Impower, which has a $4.5 million contract with Brevard Family Partnership, in 2014,

She also underwent a background check. “Her background came back clean,” Kinsley said.

Also arrested was Raybean Phillips, described by sheriff’s investigators as her live-in boyfriend. Investigators said the pair used kitchen utensils to help package the drugs.

Phillips was charged with four counts of possession of a firearm, ammunition or electric weapon by a convicted felon, and two counts of conspiracy to commit trafficking illegal drugs. Both have January court dates on the charges.
