Routine policework leads to 3 meth busts


Meth busts aren’t too common in Maricopa. But this week, Maricopa Police Department made seven such arrests. 

InMaricopa already reported four people were nabbed in a meth den in Maricopa Manor earlier this week. The department also busted a few meth users during traffic stops and other routine police checks. 

Here are three other meth-related arrests you might have missed. 

Eviction ends in meth bust 

Officers went to evict Eric S. Farley from his house last Friday, but the eviction ended in an arrest.  

Police were called to a home West Sagebrush Trail in Rancho El Dorado around 11:30 a.m., where they discovered Farley had a pair of arrest warrants out of Pinal County Superior Court for violating his probation. 

Farley was arrested and during a search, officers found a clear bag containing 2 grams of meth. Farley played dumb and said it wasn’t his, according to the police report. 

Cops booked Farley into the Pinal County jail on his two warrants and a felony count of possessing dangerous drugs. He faces over four years in prison. 

You can’t park there 

Just a few hours after Farley was jailed, MPD arrested Rachel L. Disnard on the same charges. 

Officers spotted a car parked in the vacant Tractor Supply Co. parking lot and conducted a records check on the vehicle’s owner, Disnard. 

Disnard had two felony warrants out of Pinal and Maricopa County Superior Courts for other illicit drug charges. She was handcuffed and searched, and cops found 6.6 grams of meth along with drug paraphernalia in the vehicle. 

Disnard admitted ownership of the contraband and was booked into jail on her two warrants plus two felony counts of possessing dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia. 

She faces close to six years in prison. 

Traffic stop could mean 18 years 

Maricopa police lodged more meth charges Tuesday. 

Marissa L. Chiago admitted to having meth and fentanyl pills during a traffic stop, according to the police report. 

Officers stopped Chiago near North John Wayne Parkway and West Edison Road for an undisclosed reason.  

Chiago was ordered out of her car before she allegedly admitted to having meth, a meth pipe and M30 pills, commonly billed by police as fentanyl. 

She was arrested and booked into jail on three felony counts of possessing dangerous drugs, narcotics and paraphernalia. 

She faces more than 18 years in prison.
