The Page Police Department reports it has made three high-profile drug seizures and subsequent arrests in the month of October.
Page resident Ashley Iverson was arrested by Page police officers earlier for an outstanding warrant after she was stopped for a traffic violation. Officers searched her vehicle and found 10.7 grams of methamphetamine. Iverson was booked for the warrant and also charged with possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Another Page resident, Joshua Paul, was arrested during a traffic stop after he refused to give officers his true name. A search of his vehicle yielded 10 grams of methamphetamine and several empty plastic baggies containing marijuana and methamphetamine residue.
Paul was arrested and booked for possession of dangerous drugs, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, under 21 driving with alcohol in system, and failure to provide a truthful name to law enforcement. Police say charges are pending against several juveniles who were also involved in the incident.
Two more arrests occurred on Oct. 21 when Page police officers responded to a call about a reckless driver on State Route 98. Police say they contacted the driver in the parking lot of the Antelope Point Marina and detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. The driver, identified as Kathlene Tso, of Cameron, was detained and arrested after officers discovered several bags of marijuana in the vehicle.
Her passenger, Emerson Rendell of Kaibeto, was also detained and arrested at the scene. Police say they also located additional bags, packaging materials, a scale, cash and a firearm inside the vehicle. In total, police seized 107.2 gams of marijuana and 0.8 grams of cannabis wax.
Both Tso and Rendell have been booked for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, transporting marijuana for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of narcotic drugs and possession of a firearm during a drug offense.
All individuals listed above are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
