Deputies still seek 1 in meth roundup that collars 12

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office released information this past week about a "march on meth" spanning several months that saw 12 jailed on various drug charges. Detectives are still seeking a Mayer man on charges of Dangerous Drugs for Sale.

Yavapai County Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn stated in a news release that detectives from the Special Crimes Section conducted several concurrent investigations into the sales of methamphetamine in the Spring Valley, Mayer and Cordes Lakes areas. He said detectives booked the 12 suspects into the Camp Verde Detention Center, where all, except Jennifer Ocell and Carol McMillan, remain in custody.

Detectives are seeking the whereabouts of Gregory Stuart Brown, 58, who was involved in the sales of meth on two occasions in March of this year, the release stated. Both incidents occurred on Main Street in Mayer. As a result, Brown is wanted for two counts of Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale. He is known to frequent the Mayer area but has not been seen recently. The photo in this article is from 2008 (bottom photo), D'Evelyn said, and Brown's appearance may have changed. Brown is 5' 9" tall, approximately 160 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair.

If you have information regarding Brown's location, please contact YCSO at 928-771-3260 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1800-932-3232. Callers to Silent Witness become eligible for a cash reward if Brown is located based on the tip.
