YCSO Arrests Two People After They Were Found Passed Out In A Vehicle With Numerous Fentanyl Pills Inside

Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Shell Station and Main Street on Highway 69 in Humboldt Saturday for a report of an unconscious driver at the pumps. When deputies arrived they found a male and female in the vehicle, both unconscious, and say drug paraphernalia consistent with Fentanyl use. Deputies observed that the man had possibly stopped breathing and opened the vehicle’s door and called for medical help to respond. However, as soon as the door was opened, both the man and woman woke up. Deputies then saw fentanyl pills in plain sight. During a search of the vehicle, 40 pills were found. After being checked out by medical personnel, 24-year-old Lexus Johnson and 27-year-old Forrest Searles were booked into the Yavapai County Jail on drug charges, with Johnson booked on an outstanding warrant. At the jail, two knives were found on Johnson so she was booked on an additional charge of promoting contraband.
