Traffic stop leads to arrest after 52 pounds of pot discovered By Heidi Bunch MCIN Staff On Jan. 14, a member of the Mineral County Sheriff's Office team made a traffic stop on a black Chrysler sedan for a basic speed violation. The driver, Thomas Patton, was found to have an outstanding warrant for fel- ony embezzlement out ofk County, Nevl per a press release from Sheriff Randy Adams. The release goes on to state, "Upon searching the vehicle incident to arrest, a large amount of marijuana was discov- ered." .Almost 52-pounds of marijuana was located in 12 containers along with sev- eral pills which were identified as am- phetamine tablets. Patton was charged for the basic viola- tions: basic speed, drive on a suspended driver's license, possession of marijuana 14 after a large amount of marijuana was found during a traffic stop. I hope this finds you all well. The Mineral County Sheriff's Office staff has been hard at work over the past two years so we thought we would give everybody a report of what we have been doing. Let me start by giving you a brief recap of what we informed you of back in 2o15. In 2o15 we: started evidence vault management; traded old firearms for new shotguns and tactical sights; gen- era] cleanup of office and property (eight - 40 foot roll-off dumpsters; became compliant with the State of Nevada in regards to computers; or- ganization of office (no more car parts and equipment in area for personnel); fees to inmates for certain doctor visits and prescriptions; the saUyport (caged area where prisoners are brought in to the jail) is now concrete making it safer both prisoners and staff (grant); we continue to clean out our vault as the law allows and when possible we trade for new equipment, We also did an- other evidence burn to keep our vault in good working order. We are sure there are likely a few items we have missed, but this list is a pretty accurate reflection of the proj- ects we have completed. The items listed above amounted to over $375,000 in training and equipment at no addi- tionalcost to our taxpayers. With that being said we want to en- sure you that the men and women of the sheriff's office have not neglected removal of cars in impound; purchase their primary duties while we have of additional patrol vehicle and money for additional unit in future- no cost to taxpayers; updated handheld radios with no cost to taxpayers; assisted dep- uties with getting new ballistic vests (grant); Brazos Electronic traffic man- agement system IE: electronic traffic ci- tation devices (grant); new preliminary breath testers (grant); approximately $80,000 in training' and equipment at no cost to the taxpayers; security wall and pass-through window in sheriff's office lobby; started the trustee work program utilizing inmates to assist with work projects around the county freeing up the paid county employees to better serve the community's needs and last but not least, we moved the Mineral County Sheriff's Office Com- munications Center. Since 2o15 we have not slowed down and have been working on the follow- ing. we completed the purchase, in- stallation and training for the Sp'fllman Computer Aided Dispatch, Booking and Report writing system (this is one of the most advanced systems avail- able and is the same system utilized by the State of Nevada. The Walker River Tribal Police (WRTP) has also taken steps to integrate with the Spillman system); the WRTP has-also assisted the sheriff's office with endeavors within the dispatch division, which we greatly appreciate and feel it has helped us develop a strong working relation- - Photo courtesy of MCS0 ship that benefits all citizens of Mineral Sheriff'sdeputies made an arrest Jan. County; we were successful in obtain- ing a grant for the new fire alarm system for the county government complex; successfully applied for 'two separate grants from the OHV division of DMV for the purchase of a UTV as well as a trailer capable of hauling the UTV; have implemented a school resource deputy program wherein the assigned deputy spends a majority of his time in and around our schools (first time in Min- erai County history); several doors in the sheriff's office have been equipped with electronic security locks. (No cost to our taxpayers); utilized Narcotic Sei- zure Funds to purchase another Nar- cotics Detection K-9 (Pjak, pronounced Pike); With some very creative budget- ing, grant applications and negotiating we have been able to purchase three brand new patrol cars and one "new to us" patrol truck with no additional costs to our tax payers; the sheriff's office recently implemented a body camera program where all deputies are equipped with body cameras (grant); we sent a deputy to school for comput- erized voice stress analysis and now we can complete'our own background checks for hiring; fortunate enough to get picked by the Secret Service to send a person to training for forensic analy- been tackling these additional proj- ects. We took some time to compile some statistics in areas we know the public is concerned about. We com- pared numbers from Mineral County Sheriff's Office records in 2o14 versus 9`o16. Here is what we learned: traffic enforcement (tickets) - 14o% increase; DUI cases - lO8% increase; tmlawful use of a controlled substance - 43% in- crease; possession of a controlled sub- stance - 224% increase; possession for sale of a controlled substance - 200% increase and trafficking of a controlled substance - 800% increase. We know some of those numbers look high but we double checked them and they are accurate. The sales and the trafficking are all separate cases. Even though all trafficking cases would have sales associated with them we only counted sales cases that were not part of a trafficking case. These two ar- eas are our primary drug concern here at Mineral County Sheriff's Office. We want to be clear that we will not tolerate anybody attempting to sale narcotics to the good people of Mineral County or anyone else, for that matter. We wanted the factual numbers in reference to our jail population from 2o14 versus 9`o16 to be reflected but it is proving difficult to obtain. Just relying on memory we are certain that there is approximately a too percent increase in our average daily population. We will inform you when we have the ac- tual numbers calculated. We are happy with the direction the department is going but know we still need improvement in some areas and we are constantly learning. The goal is to always be moving forward and we feel we are doing that. We are always training and trying to think outside the box to improve this sheriff's office to better serve you. We are currently trying to get on the State of Nevada 800 MHz digital radio system. This will greatly enhance our public and officer safety. We are in the middle of the grant process with the USDA where we are trying to get fund- hag for additional patrol vehicles. We currently have the newest fleet that any of us can remember but we still need a few more new vehicles to have the en- tire fleet upgraded. We Will be mailing out our request for assistance to local businesses for funding our anonymous tips account. Another thing we will be looking at in regards to anonymous tips is an ' nonymous Tip" cellular phone and computer app where our public can text tips anonymously to the sherifffs office. We are also speaking with surround- ing law enforcement agencies about entering an agreement for a regional communities here in Northern Nevada. After looking at this article I see it is a lot of information and that tells me I need to keep you informed more often. For that I apologize. I get wrapped up in everything we have going but that is no excuse, I will do better. As always if you ever have any ques- tions please feel free to call or come by the sheriffs office. We are rarely able to sit at our desks for long but if we can't be located in or around the sheriff's of- rice please leave a message and we will get back to you. SINCERELY RANDY ADAMS, SHERIFF Disposal by Detonation Operations will be conducted at the Walker Lake Range from February 6-9, 2017. For questions, please contact 945-7013.
