SUNSET POINT -- On Thursday, a Yavapai County K9 deputy stopped a Chevrolet Impala at the Sunset Point rest area off I-17 for an equipment violation.
The driver, 45-year-old Christina Reyes of Phoenix, was extremely nervous and the conversation and the officer's observations led the deputy to believe Reyes may be in possession of narcotic contraband.
Reyes allowed a consent search of the vehicle and when the deputy checked the trunk, he located 28 grams of heroin and 31 grams of methamphetamine along with prescription narcotics.
Reyes was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges including possession of dangerous drugs for sale, transportation of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, and narcotic drugs, along with other charges. She has since been released on a $10,000 bond.

YCSO was in the jurisdiction of the county when this bust happened. Yavapai County goes as far south as Black Canyon City. They are doing a great job by intercepting this from entering into the communities of Yavapai County. This suspect was from the Phoenix area and was traveling north. She would not be making a delivery of drugs to far from home, so I suspect it was headed to the tri-city area of Prescott or the Verde Valley.
So what if YCSO is getting dags for there busts. It goes to the budget and allows for more equipment and deputies for you! I'd rather have the druggies pay for this then law abiding citizens.

Why is YCSO at Sunset Point with a drug dog???
It appears YCSO is routinely camped out on the interstates to intercept drugs. They get bonuses from the DEA for every drug arrest so they are making $$$ instead of patrolling our neighborhoods. We want community policing, not our officers stationed at Sunset Point. Let the AZ Hwy Patrol get their own drug dogs and patrol I-17 and I-40.
