Mazatzal Circle Once Again Rattled By Police


For the second time in little more than a month, the neighborhood of North Mazatzal Circle was rattled by explosions.

The Payson Police Department used distraction devices at about 3:15 a.m., Thursday, June 27, executing a search warrant at the residence of Susan Kay Packer, 35.

Packer was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana, Lt. Don Engler said.

Similar tactics were used the evening of May 14 at the Packer residence.

Packer and Christopher Lee Norton, 28, Payson, were both charged with drug-related felonies in that incident.

Engler said the June 27 search warrant was the result of the continuation of the investigation leading to the May 14 incident.
