Two Illegal Campers Arrested For Meth Possession

Petrified Forest National Park

National Park News

On August 7th, ranger Josh Wentz contacted two out-of-bounds campers at the park’s north entrance.  As the investigation continued, one of the occupants of the vehicle was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia.  Ranger Marc Schlauch then joined Wentz along with officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety and the Apache County Sheriff's Office.  A search of the vehicle was conducted and the occupants were found to be in possession of two baggies of powdered methamphetamine, several bottles of unknown liquids in glass containers, butane, scales, and assorted other equipment commonly associated with the manufacture of meth. Both were taken into custody on state charges by the Apache County SO. The Phoenix DPS crime lab and haz mat field team cleaned up all items in the vehicle.
