Traffic stops result in drug arrests
The Daily Courier

In two separate traffic stops along Interstate 40 this week, Yavapai County Sheriff's Department deputies found nearly nine pounds of marijuana hidden inside the spare tire of a truck heading east on Interstate 40, and a pound of heroin inside of the shoes of a passenger in another eastbound car.

YCSO reports that at 7:15 a.m. March 3, deputies stopped a Chevrolet Silverado truck for equipment violations. When the deputy approached, he reportedly smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle. After noticing fresh fingerprints on the grimy spare tire, the deputy found seven hidden packages of marijuana, weighing a total of nine pounds.

Driver Johnathon Ford, 26, and his passenger Kelcey Ford, 29, were arrested and booked at the Camp Verde detention center on charges of possession/transportation of marijuana for sale.

Then, on March 4 at 10 a.m., a YCSO K9 deputy stopped a Chevrolet Impala for speeding and lane drifting on I-40. After learning from YCSO dispatchers that the vehicle was reported stolen in Oklahoma, officers detained the driver and passenger, Tifani Burns, 31, and Randolph Jackson, 51.

Jackson allegedly became belligerent and tried to escape. Deputies restrained him, and during a follow-up search found a half-pound package of heroin inside each shoe.

Deputies arrested Jackson for unlawful use of means of transportation, possession/transportation of a narcotic drug for sale, and attempted escape from custody for a felony. Burns was arrested for transportation of a narcotic drug for sale and false reporting to law enforcement.
