    (PANT) ARRESTED MAJOR METHAMPHETAMINE DEALER IN PRESCOTT

    Prescott, AZ: On February 12, 2021, detectives from the Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking Task (PANT) Force arrested 64-year-old Thomas Davis of Prescott for selling methamphetamine out of home. This arrest wraps up an 11-month investigation into Davis and his operation. Detectives started investigating the suspect in March of 2020 after he was found in possession of more than 200 grams of methamphetamine during a traffic stop. At that time, Davis was arrested, charged and eventually released as his case went through the judicial process. Since that time, detectives learned that despite those pending charges, Davis continued to purchase large quantities of methamphetamine from the Phoenix area, and was selling out of his home on Wagon Trail. According to information developed by detectives, Davis is known as one of the largest methamphetamine dealers in the area. “This case is an example of dedication of our PANT detectives,” said Sheriff David Rhodes. “Davis’ drug operation preys on people’s vulnerabilities and destroys our community. I’m grateful they continued to investigate and build a strong case against him.” On February 12th, 2021, PANT served a search warrant on the 1000 block of Wagon Trail, Prescott. During the search, detectives located nearly a half a pound of methamphetamine in a bedroom nightstand. Detectives also seized several scales, empty baggies and methamphetamine pipes in this room. Detectives noted an extensive video surveillance system around the home and located a safe attached above the floor covering another safe buried in the floor. Two other suspects, 54-year-old Tammy Romeo and 43-year-old Uriah Eckardt of Prescott, were inside the home at the time the search warrant was served. The investigation revealed Romeo, who is Davis’ girlfriend, helped Davis with his drug operation. Eckardt was found in possession of methamphetamine along with a homemade Sickle and access to several large machetes. All 3 suspects were booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center. Davis and Romeo were charged with Drugs Sales and are both held without bond. Eckardt was charged with Drug Possession and as a Prohibited Possessor and has since been released pending further court action.
