Meth for sale alleged
KINGMAN - A Kingman woman faces serious drug charges after Mohave County Sheriff's deputies allegedly discovered 33 grams (1.16404 ounces) of methamphetamine during a traffic stop Tuesday.
Paula Darcine McMillon, 51, was pulled over in the 3100 block of Ames Avenue at about 11:45 a.m. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Trish Carter said McMillon was "very nervous." She reportedly gave deputies consent to search her purse, where they allegedly found two large shards of a crystalline substance that weighed a combined 29.5 grams. McMillon allegedly surrendered another 3.5 grams of a white crystal substance from her bra, said Carter. She was charged with possession of dangerous drugs for sale, transport of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Feb. 15, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies arrested Matthew James Dearing, 49, of Kingman on felony charges of possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, along with a misdemeanor charge of threatening or intimidating.
Deputies responded to a disturbance at a convenience store in the 2800 block of Northern Avenue at about 9:40 p.m. Deputies contacted Dearing, who was holding a crowbar, and a man who had just arrived for work. The man said Dearing aggressively waved the crowbar and yelled before he was told to leave.

Deputies said Dearing admitted to approaching the employee with a crowbar, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter, adding he "might have approached him in aggressive manner."
He was taken to jail and detention officers allegedly found he possessed a white crystal substance during the booking process.
