Adam Fox, 23, and Winona Wells, 55, were arrested by Maricopa Police at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday on suspicion of possession of a dangerous drug, methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphrenia.
According to a probable cause statement filed by Maricopa Police, while patrolling in the area of West Dutchman and Hogenes Boulevard, an officer observed a male suspect wearing a red baseball cap, a black leather jacket and jeans peering over the back wall of a house. The suspect, later determined to be Fox, walked across the front yard of the house and “subsequently jumped over the west side block wall entering into the back yard.”
The officer observed a red Hyundai parked in front of the house, “occupied with a female, later identified as Winona Wells.”
The officer wrote that Fox jumped back over the wall and “began walking towards the passenger door of the red vehicle with a metal object in hand. He noticed my vehicle and placed the metal object on the roof of the vehicle,” the officer wrote in their report.
While the officer spoke with Fox, a second police officer arrived and noticed a plastic container near the passenger side seat. Wells exited the vehicle while officers continued to search the car.
“Officers located in the center console a glass ‘meth pipe’ with residue and a second ‘meth pipe’ in the glove box,” according to the probable cause statement. “In addition, within Winona’s purse, a small red plastic baggy containing white crystal substance which was later identified with a field test as 0.6 grams of methamphetamine.”
Wells told officers both pipes were hers and the methamphetamine was purchased two to three days ago.
Fox told officers he was kicked out of the house and he was attempting to enter the home to “gather some of his clothes inside.” He said he was not able to contact the homeowner, who is his cousin, by telephone or by ringing the front door bell.
“When questioned about the object on the roof (of the car) he said he would have used it to open the back door of the home,” the probable cause statement reads.
Officers found a small plastic bag in the left pocket of his leather jacket that contained 0.4 grams of methamphetamine.
Wells and Fox were both arrested and taken to the Pinal County Jail.
