On March 31 Maricopa Police responded to a disturbance call on North Ibis Way. During the investigation they ended up charging Josiah Shields, 19, with six drug felony charges.

When police arrived about 10:30 p.m. they found Shields and Trinity Olson, 19, standing next to a red 2007 Dodge station wagon parked in the street. Shields told police the vehicle was his and he was picking up Olson at her residence.

Police allegedly smelled “the odor of fresh marijuana emanating from within the vehicle, and a search of the vehicle was conducted,” a Maricopa Police probable cause statement reads.

Officers reportedly found just shy of a gram of marijuana on the driver’s seat and a blue pill that later tested positive as Oxycodone. They also located five cannabis oil cartridges, a glass bong, a red grinder, a package of “multiple silicone objects” used to house cannabis wax and four bottles of Nebula Nectars 500mg THC liquid in a backpack, according to the report.

The report also states officers found “over 350 empty clear cartridges used to hold cannabis oil in smoking devices” in the vehicle.

“It appeared Josiah (Shields) was filling the empty cartridges with cannabis oil to sell for profit,” the report states.

Officers also located $1,125 in cash. After arresting Shields, police also allegedly found 36 unknown white pills, an unknown red pill and a clear capsule with white powder inside located in his pocket.

He remains in the Pinal County Jail pending the posting of a $2,500 bond.

Olson was charged with domestic violence disorderly conduct for disturbing the peace of her mother as she was allegedly outside the mother’s home having a verbal argument with Shields, according to another police probable cause statement.

She was booked into the Pinal County Jail but has been released, according to jail records.
