Drug raid leads to one arrest

Marked and unmarked police cars, a SWAT truck and a helicopter all converged at a Kingman residence Thursday.

The bust ended with one man in custody.

Officers with the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team (MAGNET) arrested a Kingman man on four felony charges Thursday.

Eight officers from MAGNET along with a Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team from Bullhead City executed a search warrant at a residence in the 800 block of Wilshire Road in Kingman.

"During the course of the search we discovered dangerous drugs, drug paraphernalia, marijuana, a stolen vehicle and counterfeit U.S.

currency," said detective Paul Maine of MAGNET.

Taken into custody was Jimmy Cloosen, who is in his 40s, Maine said.

He was booked into the Mohave County Jail on charges of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a stolen vehicle and being a prohibited possessor of a firearm.

Cloosen reportedly offered no resistance.

A rifle found in the residence led to the prohibited possessor charge, Maine said.

No one else was arrested.

Officers at the scene seized methamphetamines with an estimated street value of $200, several hundred dollars in counterfeit currency and a stolen Jeep Cherokee, Maine said.

Ranger-41, the Department of Public Safety air rescue helicopter, provided air support during the operation, Maine said.
