Four people have been arrested following an investigation into meth sales in Lake Havasu City and Parker.

Lake Havasu City Police said Tuesday 29-year-old Havasu resident Tara Cosby and 49-year-old Havasu resident Clint Martin during a traffic stop in La Paz County on Sept. 17. During the stop, deputies with the La Paz County Sheriff’s Department allegedly found 1 pound of meth inside the vehicle. Three days later, officers found information that 2 ounces of meth was located at a home occupied by Martin and Cosby in the 300 block of Sunflower Drive. Patrol officers with Lake Havasu City Police Department served a search warrant at the home, where they uncovered additional meth, marijuana and numerous drug paraphernalia items, according to a press release. Martin was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs and possessing drug paraphernalia. Cosby was arrested on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Both are being held in the La Paz County Jail on $5,000 cash-only bonds.

Police also arrested Paul Kornish, 49, of Havasu, and Elysia Espinoza, 27, of Havasu. They were living in a trailer on the property, police said. Kornish and Espinoza were booked into Mohave County on drug charges and held on $5,000 cash-only bonds.

[wink] Good job La Paz County I wonder how the community thinks these officers find these drugs on their traffic stops. Do most people think it's just sitting in plain view? This is why officers see signs of nervousness on stops and signs of impairment and ask questions. Bingo people going to jail for a little while having a criminal record now or if they have one they may now have more convictions on their record and never amount to anything in life other then a drug dealer.
