Traffic Stop Leads to Meth and Firearm

Sedona AZ (September 12, 2018) –  On September 6, 2018, just before 11:00 p.m., Dustin Perley, 38, and Ann Duffy, 34, both from Phoenix and David Everitt Jr., 48, from Clarkdale were arrested for various drug charges following a traffic stop on AZ I-17 near Cordes Lakes, Arizona.

A Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputy stopped a U-Haul marked GMC Sierra pickup travelling north of Cordes Lakes on Interstate 17 for several moving violations. The driver was Ann Duffy accompanied by a 15-year-old juvenile female passenger in the cab; seated in the pickup truck bed were Everitt and Perley. Duffy told the deputy they were heading to Prescott, even though they were already past the correct exit.

A record check indicated Duffy’s out of state license was suspended. Duffy remained unusually nervous during the contact with the deputy and was issued a citation. During further conversation, Duffy admitted carrying syringes used to inject methamphetamine, and a marijuana pipe in her purse, while Perley admitted there was a meth pipe in the glove box.

Responding YCSO deputies recovered the paraphernalia from Duffy’s purse. During a check of the vehicle interior, deputies opened a shoe box and found a Gillette brand HIDE-A-CAN which contained more than 22 grams of meth packed in several individual baggies. The HIDE-A-CANs are used to conceal valuables and contraband in a hidden compartment accessible by unscrewing the bottom of the can. A scale, meth pipe and nearly sixty baggies were also seized from the box indicating illicit drug sales.

A shoe box logo and size matched the brand of shoes Dustin Perley was wearing. In the bed of the truck, deputies found several grams of marijuana along with a .357 magnum pistol in a suitcase belonging to David Everitt Jr, a convicted felon not permitted to possess firearms. Several rounds of ammunition were also found.

Everitt was charged with Possession of a Deadly Weapon during commission of a Felony, Prohibited Possessor in Possession of Firearm, Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia. He remains in custody on a $15,000 bond.

Perley was charged with Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale, Possession of Dangerous Drugs and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He also remains in custody on a $15,000 bond.

Duffy was cited for Suspended License and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Deputies contacted the juvenile girl’s legal guardian and also filed a report with the Department of Child Safety regarding the incident.
