willsonLake Havasu City report the April 1 arrest of a local resident wanted for drug  related charges. The suspect is identified as Bryan Willson, 38.

The charges against Willson involve a February 18 traffic accident from which he fled on foot. Willson allegedly dropped a large amount of drugs as he fled the crash.

Three men detained Willson and showed arriving police officers drugs and cash that spilled onto the ground. Police said they recovered nearly a pound of methamphetamine and a little more than $1,000 in cash.

Willson was transported to the hospital for treatment of a collapsed lung. He told officers he fled to California after he was discharged and that he returned to Lake Havasu a couple of weeks before he was picked up on the arrest warrant.
