PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ — Two people have been arrested, accused of smuggling drugs in the Prescott Valley area.

Thirty-seven-year-old Sunny Miles of Prescott was pulled over on November 26 for an alleged traffic violation on Highway 69 at Bradshaw Mountain Road in Prescott Valley.

Miles had previously been flagged by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and the PANT (Partner’s Against Narcotics Trafficking) project as possibly being involved in sales of methamphetamine, according to a release from YCSO.

YCSO says that a K-9 from the Prescott Police Department responded to the odor of drugs in the vehicle.

During a search, officers found a microwave in the back of the vehicle. Inside the microwave was what appeared to be a bag of unopened dog treats and two Red Bull cans.

The treat bag and one of the Red Bull cans were allegedly full of methamphetamine.

A syringe containing half a gram of heroin was also allegedly found.

YCSO says Miles and her passenger, 45-year-old Adam Laubinger, were arrested after the drugs were located.

Both face charges including possession of a dangerous drug (meth), possession of a dangerous drug for sale (meth), transportation of a dangerous drug for sale (meth), possession of a narcotic drug (heroin) and possession of drug paraphernalia (2 counts).

Both remain in custody on a $2,500 bond.
