Bullhead City Police arrested Deanna Marie Tucker, 49 of Needles, CA, for possession of dangerous drugs, dangerous drugs for sale, narcotic drugs, narcotic drugs for sale, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, transportation for the sale of a narcotic drug, and tampering with physical evidence.
On August 9th at about 3 p.m., a woman flagged down officers in the area of Rainbow Drive and Highway 95. Tucker wanted to report a vehicle stolen.
In the vehicle she was in, officers could smell a strong odor of marijuana. Tucker turned over a container of marijuana to police officers. Police then asked permission to search her purse which was sitting on her lap. When she turned over her purse, officers saw a clear plastic baggie between her legs that appeared to be heroin. Some drug paraphernalia and marijuana were also located in the vehicle.
Officers later saw that in the back seat of the patrol car, there was methamphetamine all over the floorboard. Tucker had meth concealed on her person and attempted to crush it up and destroy it with her hands and feet while in the back of the patrol car. Paramedics took Tucker to the hospital under the suspicion she ingested some of the methamphetamine.
The heroin weighed approximately 11 grams. The meth that was collected from the patrol car weighed approximately 3.1 grams.
Once she was medically cleared, Tucker was booked and transported to the Mohave County Jail in Kingman.
