ARIZONA CITY — Ashlee Versluis, 30, was arrested Sept. 4 for the possession of a pound of methamphetamine and 10 grams of heroin.

A pound of methamphetamine ranges in price from $3,500 to $21,000 depending on the location of the drugs in the United States.

According to a probable cause statement, a Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy was serving a warrant on the residence where Versluis lives on West Raven Drive in Arizona City.

She was seen leaving the residence in her Jeep Liberty and officers made a traffic stop on the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, a small clear plastic bag containing heroin was found.

Later that evening, PCSO deputies searched her residence, finding a pound of methamphetamine and 10 grams of heroin in her bedroom.

In an interview with investigators, Versluis said the meth belonged to her boyfriend, who was selling it out of their home. She said she had tried to get him to stop.

There is no evidence the boyfriend was arrested based on a search of jail and court records.

Versluis was transported and booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center for possession of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of a narcotic drug, possession of a narcotic drug for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Versluis remains in the county jail without bond as she was out on a pretrial release on a separate felony case in Maricopa County. She is considered a “danger to society,” according to court records.
