Prescott – The ‘house manager’ for the ‘Roundsville Treatment Center,’ Clayton Yost, was arrested on drug charges after an investigation by detectives from the Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking Taskforce. Detectives found that Yost would drive his red BMW sedan to meet with his buyers of LSD and marijuana.
According to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking Taskforce (PANT) executed a search warrant at 610 N. Bagby Drive in Prescott after receiving information regarding drug sales from the home.
During the investigation, detectives learned that Yost apparently kept his supply of drugs on the premises.
On February 6, 2020, PANT detectives served the warrant and Yost was detained along with 9 other persons. Detectives confirmed a total of 10 people were living inside the residence, did not know each other and were paying about $700 a month for the ‘services.’ A portion of the home was under extensive construction and an official from the city confirmed no permits were issued for such work. As a result, the city official posted an Unsafe to Occupy Notice at the main entrance while detectives gathered evidence, according to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives recovered a quantity of marijuana and mushrooms and a short-barreled rifle with no apparent serial number.
Yost was booked on charges including Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale, Possess or Use Dangerous Drug, Possession of Marijuana for Sale, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and a Probation Violation. He remains in the Camp Verde Detention Center on a total bond of $35,000.
