A 34-year-old Mesa woman, Trisha Lynn Weaver, was charged with Conspiracy, Illegally Conducting an Enterprise, and Possession of a Dangerous Drug for Sale. Weaver was arrested on June 9, 2020, after allegedly receiving and then transporting three pounds of methamphetamine from a supplier.
When contacted by law enforcement, Weaver ran but was quickly arrested. Investigators purportedly located three pounds of methamphetamine concealed in a potato chip bag in the vehicle Weaver came from. She was seen previously with the chip bag while entering the car.
Weaver faces similar charges in a separate case with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office. In 2019, a State Grand Jury indicted Weaver for Conspiracy, Illegally Conducting an Enterprise, Possession of a Dangerous Drug (methamphetamine) for Sale, Possession of a Narcotic Drug (heroin) for sale, Possession of a Narcotic Drug (fentanyl) for sale, and Unlawful Flight from a Pursuing Law Enforcement Vehicle.
Prior to her second arrest, Weaver fled in a vehicle while being pursued by law enforcement.
Weaver has pleaded not guilty to the alleged charges in all cases, and will appear in court for an initial pretrial conference on July 30, 2020.
