- In recent weeks, Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking (PANT) detectives developed information about sales of meth from a home in the 900 block of Pike Place, Prescott. The sales involved 59-year-old Kenneth Wesson who lived at the home. On September 10, 2020, detectives obtained a search warrant for Wesson and his residence. Prescott Police Officers initially located Wesson outside the home and took him into custody. During the search, detectives seized more than 23 grams of meth along with marijuana and numerous items consistent with drug sales.
Wesson was booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges including Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale, Possession of Dangerous Drugs, Possession of Marijuana, Fortifying a Drug House, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He remains in-custody on a $25,000 bond.
- Information obtained during the search warrant on Pike Place indicated 74-year-old Carlton Godwin was selling drugs to Wesson. As a result, PANT detectives obtained a search warrant for a location in the 300 block of S. Alarcon Street, Prescott. When the search warrant was served, Godwin fled from the living room into the bathroom where he apparently flushed illicit drugs. At the time of the warrant, detectives seized a fentanyl tablet and suboxone strip.
Godwin was arrested and booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on 2 counts of Possession of Narcotic Drugs, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and 2 counts of Misconduct Involving Weapons (possession of deadly weapons as a prohibited possessor). He was released the following day. On September 17, 2020, the Prescott Police Department arrested Godwin for DUI, Possession of Narcotics, and Theft of a credit card. He is held without bond on these cases.
- On September 15, 2020, PANT detectives served a search warrant in the 3400 block of Cactus Drive, Chino Valley. The search warrant was obtained based on reliable information that meth was being sold from the home with the dealers identified as 22-year-old Michael Jarvis and 26-year-old Cheyenne Yetter, both from Chino Valley. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of 12.5 grams of meth packaged and marked with prices for sales along with numerous pipes, needles, and paraphernalia consistent with drug sales –see photo.
Prior to service of the warrant, Yetter and her mother, 48-year-old Jacqueline Book, were stopped in a white Volvo on Road 3 North in Chino Valley and detained.
A 6-year-old child and her mother were found at the home when the warrant was served. Jarvis was arrested inside the home and admitted ongoing sales of meth over the last several months. Yetter denied selling drugs even though detectives had a factual basis to prove otherwise.
Jarvis was booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges including Sale of Dangerous Drugs, Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale, Possession of Dangerous Drugs, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He remains in custody without bond.
Yetter was booked into the Camp Verde Detention on charges including Sale of Dangerous Drugs, Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale, Possession of Dangerous Drugs and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. She remains in-custody without bond.
Book was arrested and booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges of Possession of Dangerous Drugs and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and has been released pending further court proceedings.
