On August 15, 2017, around 8 Am, 45-year-old Isaac James Brown from Florida was arrested on numerous charges including Transportation of Marijuana for Sale, Possession of Marijuana for Sale, and Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia. He was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center and remains in-custody on a $40,000 bond.
A YCSO K9 deputy stopped a 2000 model year Fleetwood Jamboree motorhome for equipment violations east I40, Ash Fork, AZ. During a conversation about the violations, Brown was noticeably more nervous than the average driver and shared conflicting information regarding his travel itinerary. Based on the K9 deputy’s training and experience, he determined the likelihood Brown’s vehicle contained contraband and requested consent to search. Brown permitted the search.
Brown denied knowledge of the marijuana in the motorhome that he owns. During a check of the motorhome’s interior, the deputy initially found a ‘Coca Cola hide-a-can’ with the strong odor of marijuana. In the main bedroom of the motorhome, the deputy lifted the foot of the bed and immediately detected an odor of marijuana. A storage area with a false bottom was then discovered. With the false cover removed, the deputy saw numerous food saver bags containing marijuana determined at 40 pounds in weight.
