Routine Traffic Stop Turns Into Major Drug Bust In Dewey Wednesday

A routine traffic stop turned into a big drug bust for Prescott Police. On Wednesday afternoon, a Prescott Police officer pulled over a vehicle in Dewey. The officer noticed the driver of the vehicle, 31-year-old Dewey resident Amber Dawn Lee was acting very nervous, which prompted the officer to deploy a K-9 around the vehicle. The K-9 alerted the officer, which resulted in the officer finding 200 fentanyl pills in a backpack, and more in Lee’s shoe. After the officer talked to Lee more, a warrant was ordered to search her residence. Later in the day on Wednesday, the search of Lee’s home began. Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking entered the home and found a sleeping 18-month-old baby in a room with about a pound of meth and over 500 fentanyl pills. PANT personnel took the baby to a safe place outside of the residence while further searches continued. Another resident of the home, 37-year-old Dewey resident Robert Dunmire, started an altercation with officers, resulting in Dunmire being taken into custody. The baby has been turned over to the Department of Child Safety. Both Dunmire and Lee have multiple charges against them including possession of narcotics for sale and child abuse. They have both been book into the Yavapai County Jail.
