Sedona AZ (August 31, 2016) – On August 29, 2016, at approximately 9:30 in the morning, Mina Gooldy, 58, was arrested at her 1000 block of Dixon Drive, Prescott, Arizona home.
Recently, detectives from the Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking (PANT) task force developed information involving heroin sales by Gooldy from her home. Based on this evidence, detectives obtained a search warrant for the home and, as a result, seized nearly 10 grams of heroin along with a usable quantity of methamphetamine and heroin related drug paraphernalia. Detectives also recovered a handgun next to papers documenting recent drug transactions. During the investigation, Gooldy was directly connected to the illicit sales, and arrested on the indicated charges.
She was booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges including Possession of a Narcotic Drug, Possession of a Narcotic Drug for Sales, Possession of a Dangerous Drug, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Firearm Possession during the Commission of a Felony. She remains in custody on a $20,000 bond.
Gooldy also admitted to ongoing personal use of heroin.
Gooldy had prior arrests:
- In June of this year, PANT detectives stopped Gooldy while she was driving a black 2013 Kia passenger car and found more than 70 grams of heroin, 30 grams of methamphetamine, morphine pills and a loaded handgun. Gooldy was booked on several drug related charges including the Possession/Transportation/Sales of Drugs and Narcotics. She was eventually released on a $25,000 bond. The vehicle was seized pending forfeiture proceedings.
- Earlier this month on August 18, PANT detectives were called to assist Prescott Valley Police officers in a traffic stop with Gooldy, now driving a red 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo sedan. About 26 grams of heroin were found in her possession. Gooldy was again arrested for Transportation and Possession of a Narcotic Drug and booked at the Camp Verde Detention Center and released on $20,000 bond.
