FARMINGTON — The San Juan County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that warrants have been issued for the arrest of two people for suspicion of selling drugs.
Members of the Sheriff's Office Special Enforcement Team went to a residence last Thursday in the vicinity of 5700 Old Kirtland Highway after receiving a tip that a lot of traffic was coming and going from the mobile home, according to a press release.
Special Enforcement Team Sergeant Scott Facka said in the release that the description given in the tip was consistent with a location where drug sales are being conducted.
Upon arrival, the law enforcement team talked to ShawnTe Dawes, 23, who lived there with her boyfriend, the release states.
Dawes allegedly admitted that she and her boyfriend Jeramiah Wiggins, 22, had marijuana inside the home but denied selling drugs.
Deputies later obtained a search warrant and during the search they located an ounce of marijuana, an ounce of cocaine, $4,300 in cash, documents supporting the sale of narcotics and four pistols. Facka said in the press release that the drugs and weapons were hidden throughout the house. No one was home at the time, officials said.
Warrants have been issued for the arrest of Dawes and Wiggins, charging them with trafficking of a controlled substance, distribution of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
