Tweekers - Yeah, Phoenix has 'em too


A Phoenix woman was arrested Valentine's day in Sedona after she was found with methamphetamine and heroin in her dress.
Officials from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said they received a call of suspicious activity at about 10:15 a.m. on February 14th, along Lower Red Rock Loop in Sedona. Sedona police officers were in the area and found a female, barefoot and wearing an evening dress, being chased by a male wearing dress clothes. Officers said they held the couple until YCSO deputies arrived. The pair reportedly had been involved in a non-physical argument.
The woman, identified as 25-year-old Randi Bridges of Phoenix, was found to have an outstanding felony arrest warrant out of Maricopa County. While talking with Bridges, officers suspected she was under the influence of illegal drugs. She was searched by a female officer on the scene, who found two syringes and a plastic bag containing heroin which fell from her clothing. Prescription pills were also later found in the Sedona police vehicle where Bridges was held until YCSO arrived.
The male was released at the scene and Bridges was arrested for the warrant and drug possession charges. She was transported to the Verde Detention Center and during a search of her property, a silver spoon was found, which along with the syringes, tested positive for methamphetamine. A check of Bridges’ wallet revealed a baggie containing methamphetamine.
Bridges was booked on the warrant and other charges including Possession of Dangerous Drugs, Possession of Narcotic Drugs and several counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Thanks, Beverly!
