A traffic stop led to a drug arrest early this month for a man with a misdemeanor warrant.
Maricopa Police Department arrested Shawn Hill on drug charges March 1 at 1:25 a.m. at the Ancon Avenue and Edison Road intersection in Acacia Crossings neighborhood.
A warrant check from his Indiana driver license confirmed Hill had a misdemeanor warrant out of the Maricopa/Stanfield Justice Court. The report did not specify what the warrant was for.
Prior to the arrest, an officer reported Hill stated he was in possession of drugs and a pipe.
“He stated he had the drugs in his underwear,” the police report alleges.
Of the items allegedly removed from the area, included: a clear glass pipe with white and brown residue, a small clear baggie containing meth, additional small clear baggies, a pink bag containing a lighter, a multicolor glass pipe and a small jar of marijuana, according to the report.
The officer also reported finding a weigh scale inside the vehicle “next to the seat where Hill was sitting.”
The scale purportedly had a white, powdery substance on it.
MPD transported Hill to Pinal County Jail and forwarded charges of possession of a dangerous drug, a class 4 felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, a class 6 felony, and possession of marijuana, class 6 felony.
