2 arrested in N. Arizona for running 'marijuana business' out of their home, authorities say

BULLHEAD CITY, AZ - Two people have been arrested in Bullhead City after authorities found a "marijuana business" being run out of a residence.

Forty-five-year-old Todd Timothy Leavitt and his girlfriend, 36-year-old Erin Marie McHarg, were both arrested for possession of marijuana for sale, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving weapons.

Detectives with the Mohave Area General Narcotic Enforcement Team (MAGNET) got complaints about suspected drug activity and high traffic volumes coming to and from a home in the 2300 block of Red Rock Road.

When detectives went to the home last Thursday morning they could immediately smell a strong odor of marijuana and found plants being grown on the front porch.

Police got a search warrant and found the home was being used as a business where customers could buy marijuana, drug paraphernalia and baked goods such as brownies, muffins, cookies and lollipops that were cooked using marijuana oils/butter, according to the Bullhead City Police Department.

There was even a customer counter with a sign posted with business hours and a menu posted listing prices for the baked marijuana items.

Police seized several gallons of suspected marijuana oil, drug paraphernalia, a 12-gauge shotgun, about $7,000 in cash from suspected drug sales and approximately 13.7 pounds of marijuana.

Leavitt and McHarg had legal medical marijuana cards but were legally each only allowed to possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana.

They were booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman.
