Police arrested 32-year-old Dustin Stevens, of Bedford, on charges of possession of meth, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and wanted on a warrant for failure to appear
According to Bedford Assistant Police Chief Joseph DeWees, on October 28, 2019, at 11:42 p.m. officers went to a home in the 500 block of S Street to serve an arrest warrant on 29-year-old Felicia Shirley.
Shirley and Bauer were arrested earlier when warrants were issued for their arrests followed by Brent Stevens’ arrest.
“Officers knocked on the door of the residence and Brent Stevens answered,” said DeWees. “The officers requested to speak with Felicia Shirley. The male said that he would get her, which he did. The warrant was served. While the door was opened to the house, officers could see and smell evidence of narcotics use.”
Officers entered the house and spoke with the occupants. Officers could also see in plain view several items related to narcotics use.
The occupants gave police permission to search the house.
“During the search and investigation, more narcotics were located,” said DeWees.
Officers located in a bedroom multiple glass and metal smoking utensils containing burnt leafy ashes which all appeared to be marijuana. These items belonged to Brent Stevens and Shirley.
Police say 39-year-old Travis Bauer was found possessing meth and attempting to destroy the drug.
He was arrested on charges of possession of meth and obstruction of justice.
Shirley was arrested on a failure to appear warrant and new charges of possession of meth in the presence of a minor, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
