Evidence-supression motion denied for city man accused in drug case<BR>

Arguments about a motion suppress evidence in the drug possession case against a 69-year-old Kingman man were heard in Mohave County Superior Court on Friday.

The motion was denied, and Edward Mallon faces a Sept.

14 trial on a charge of felony possession of narcotic drugs for sale.

In the meantime, Mallon's son, Edward Mallon Jr., 29, still faces a Sept.

28 trial in a shootout with Kingman police in December.

A Superior Court hearing in the courtroom next to where Mallon's father appeared was cancelled Friday because there were no new developments in the case.

Mallon Sr.

is charged with a felony possession of narcotic drugs for sale.

Last April, police found 15 grams of cocaine packaged in 30 baggies hidden at the base of a toilet at his home.

Police at the time discovered someone had hurriedly attempted to flush the cocaine down the toilet, whom Mallon claims was someone other than himself, according to deputy county attorney Lee Jantzen.

Mallon Jr., faces three counts of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault that stem from a shootout he had with three Kingman police officers in December.

An officer was shot in the chest during the incident.

He was wearing a bulletproof vest and was released from the hospital the day of the shooting.

Mallon Jr.

is currently serving a two and a half year sentence for possession of drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving a weapon.

He also has separate trials scheduled in early October on Bullhead City charges of theft and unlawful flight.
