Thanks to the trained nose of Payson Police Department’s K-9, $2,000 worth of methamphetamine was taken off the streets April 7.
Police arrested Payson resident Scott Sheldon Worthem, 47, on charges of possession of dangerous drugs, tampering with physical evidence, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, DUI with drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana.
Worthem was stopped for a routine traffic violation. During the stop, the K-9 alerted officers to approximately 20 grams of methamphetamine. Officers also found drug paraphernalia and marijuana inside the vehicle.
“The case is still being investigated by detectives from the department’s special enforcement unit,” said Payson Sgt. John Heflin.
