13 grams of meth, marijuana, paraphernalia and other narcotics seized
A Globe Police search of a house that advertised meth sales led to the arrest of four people and seizure of 13 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, various other narcotics and drug paraphernalia.
During a parole search of a the home at 700 E. Maple St., which had a plastic sign out front that said “Buy Meth Here,” Globe Police officers observed several items of drug contraband in plain sight, according to a news release. They were able to obtain a search warrant, and the Gila County Drug, Gang and Violent Crimes Task Force was asked to assist.
“We have been receiving complaints about this particular residence for many months,” said Globe Police officer Kat KJellstrom. “When state parole asked us to assist with their search, I jumped at the chance.”
Marlene Pazzi, 33, of Globe was arrested and charged with parole violation, possession of methamphetamine for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia. The following people were also arrested and charged with the following crimes: Joshua Harris, 26, Globe – possession of narcotics, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia; Lucas Andres, 30, of Tempe – possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, and Shalet Dillard, 29, of Globe – possession of drugs paraphernalia and weapons violation.
Globe Police Chief Mark Nipp said, “Globe PD is committed to keeping drugs off the streets of our city and our neighboring communities.”
Parole officers supervise people who have been released from prison. Officers may search of the homes of parolees at any time and may request assistance from police officers during searches, according to Nipp.
