YAVAPAI COUNTY -- At mid-morning Tuesday, Yavapai County Sheriff's K9 deputy pulled over a 2013 Chevy Impala for speeding and lane drifting on Interstate 40 in eastern Yavapai County. Tifani Burns, 31, was driving the car with a passenger, Randolph Jackson, 51.

Burns provided an Oklahoma driver's license, and Jackson gave the deputy a rental agreement for the vehicle. The pair indicated they were traveling from Vegas back to Oklahoma.

Within moments of the traffic stop however, Sheriff's dispatchers told the deputy that the Chevy had been reported stolen from a town in Oklahoma. Jackson and Burns were immediately detained. During a search of the vehicle, deputies found a receipt indicating the pair had actually been in California, contradicting their earlier statements.

While the investigation continued, Jackson became belligerent and tried to escape. He was restrained and during a follow-up search of Jackson, deputies found nearly a half-pound package of heroin inside each shoe. Jackson refused to discuss any connection with the heroin.

Jackson was arrested for unlawful use of means of transportation, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of a narcotic drug for sale, transportation of a narcotic drug for sale, and attempted escape from custody for a felony. He remains in-custody on a $50,000 bond.

Burns was arrested for transportation of a narcotic drug for sale and false reporting to law enforcement. Burns remains in-custody on a $20,000 bond.
