BULLHEAD CITY, AZ (CBS5) -

Operation Wagon Wheel rolled through a Bullhead City trailer park Monday, resulting in eight narcotics-related arrests.

Numerous complaints were received leading up to the crackdown about methamphetamine use and sales inside the Wagon Wheel Trailer Park in the 400 block of Moser Avenue.

Acting on the tips, the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team conducted search warrants on four trailers on the property, with help from Bullhead City police and SWAT officers, police in Lake Havasu City and Kingman and GIITEM, the Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission.

During Monday's crackdown, detectives said they also noticed numerous code enforcement violations. The city's Code Enforcement officials notified police that they, too, had been conducting their own investigation on the property because of dangerous building issues.

Code Enforcement declared about 14 trailers, mostly vacant, as uninhabitable for violations, such as sewage line breaks, dangerous electrical wiring and unsafe flooring.

Those arrested were:

  • Melanie Lee Kuehmann, 30. Police said they found her to be in possession of hypodermic needles and other meth paraphernalia.
  • Berl Ralph Lolmaugh, 59. A useable amount of methamphetamine and a meth pipe was located in his bedroom, officers said.
  • Charles Waukene Campbell, 56. Police said they found a useable amount of meth and a scale, spoon, hypodermic needles and several plastic baggies containing meth residue that belonged to Campbell.
  • Kaela Jayne Davis, 21. She had about 4 grams of methamphetamine, two glass meth pipes, a baggie containing a small amount of marijuana, and a firearm in her bedroom, police said.
  • Gary Eugene Coker, 52. Police said they found used syringes in the vicinity where Coker sleeps.
  •  Jared Marcel Ary, 32. Officers said they found he had a syringe in his pocket.
  • Steven Thomas Williams, 47, and Kellie Marie Davis, 45. Police said they located methamphetamine paraphernalia, including a scale inside their residence.

All were booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman. Ary was taken to the substation jail in Mohave Valley.
