The Flagstaff Police Department acknowledges that large scale narcotic arrests such as this commonly lead to a decrease in other crimes. The investigators used multiple techniques including undercover operations, targeting known felons, and targeting known criminals who victimize Flagstaff, and other techniques. As a result, a large quantity of narcotics and firearms have been removed from the streets of Flagstaff, and those responsible for their distribution in our community will be held accountable.

  1. The police officer who was working with me about blew his top. I swear there was smoke coming out of his ears. And the “not dangerous ” person tried to take my three kids from their elementary school. I am blessed that the teacher, was also a police officer, and called me asap. But still he resides on the bench.

  2. You are so right about judge Moron! I was bro g stalked by my ex husband with a gun, and he kept breaking and entering .He lifted the restraining order, said he wasnt dangerous.
