KINGMAN - A Kingman woman was apparently upset when a Mohave County Sheriff's deputies allegedly interrupted her and her friend smoking marijuana.
Valerie A. Julius, 47, was a passenger in a car that was pulled over Friday on Thompson Avenue near Jimmie Drive at about 1:50 p.m. Deputies allegedly smelled freshly burnt marijuana in the car.
The driver, a 53-year-old man, did not have a driver's license and was taken into custody. Julius reportedly got out of the car and reportedly slammed her purse on the hood of the car and began screaming.
A search of the purse allegedly revealed Julius possessed a metal pipe with burnt marijuana. They also allegedly found a white crystal substance and a plastic container with white crystal residue.
Julius and the man were taken into custody. She was charged with three felonies: possession of dangerous drugs, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The man faces a misdemeanor charge of failure to show a driver's license.
On March 29, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Kelly Janette Cook, 33, of Kingman on a felony probation violation warrant issued by Mohave County Superior Court, along with a misdemeanor charge of false report to law enforcement and a misdemeanor contempt of court warrant issued by Kingman Justice Court.
A 37-year-old Bullhead City man who was with Cook was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia and a misdemeanor shoplifting warrant issued by Bullhead City Municipal Court.
Deputies pulled over the pair on Elmer Drive and Northern Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. Cook allegedly identified herself as Jakki Cook and could not remember her Social Security number. Deputies eventually determined her identify and record checks revealed the warrants for both Cook and her friend. A search of the man allegedly revealed a metal container that held marijuana residue.
Both were taken into custody without incident.
