Chino Valley woman hides meth in mouth during jail booking
Chino Valley Review

A woman arrested by Chino Valley Police when they found illegal drugs in her vehicle Monday tried to hide more than 7 grams of methamphetamine in her mouth during booking at the Yavapai County Jail.

Chino Valley Police Lt. Vince Schaan said that when officers contacted Chino resident Jamie Bryant, 41, in the 600 block of Butterfield Road while investigating a delayed theft report, they asked if the department's K-9, Gage, could sniff the outside of the vehicle. Gage alerted on the vehicle, which police then searched.

Officers found eight separate packages of methamphetamine with a combined weight of 4.3 grams, along with a small amount of marijuana and several prescription drugs in Bryant's purse.

Schaan said during subsequent interviews, Bryant admitted the methamphetamine was hers and she selling drugs to make money. After she was taken to the Yavapai County Jail in Prescott, police discovered during booking that Bryant was hiding the vial of methamphetamine weighing 7.34 grams in her mouth.

The total weight of methamphetamine possessed by Bryant was 11.64 grams with a street value of $1,100, Schaan said.

Bryant faces several felony counts, including possession of a dangerous drug for sale, taking contraband into a correctional facility, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of prescription only drugs, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

I am sooo glad that those of you who read this article feel that you have walked in Mrs. Bryant's shoes! You have NOT.... How dare you pass backhanded judgement on a person you know NOTHING about! Here's a thought....open up job opportunities for single women to support their children in Yavapai County. Because I firsthand have seen Mrs. Bryant search the ends of this county for gainful employment tirelessly. I am not excusing the legalities of this situation, however I am asking for compassion in this one.... Because it wasn't a matter of just out drug slinging....Perhaps it was a Mother with no outside support who loved her son soooo completely that she was willing to risk so much just so she could provide. She is down.... She has been kicked enough!!!! ENOUGH!!! She has enough on her plate! You folks are shameful! You made Baby Jesus cry today!

For Jamie Lynn: I have a daughter that went through the whole 'meth thing' quite some time ago. She paid her dues, turned it around and yes, she is a good person as well. I hope it all comes out good for you in the end.

hello im Jamie.. I really don't know what to say that or how to feel about people, that i do not know and they do not know me.. to b so judgemental and not understand my stitution of my past or my present, i am sorry for u.. because i am a good person, and made a bad choice, but im also sorry for me, because i will never know u, and the kind of person that u maybe. so i will serve the time n money that the law tells me to do. Will i b a better person when i get out? Will my son b a better man when he grows up? i know that he, my son, will always love me bc he never was homeless, hungry, thirsty, never feared that i wasn't there for him n provided for him as best.as a single woman.. im sorry if i hurt any one,of u that feels necessary to kick me more down more than i already feel with n myself. PLEASE HAVE A GRATEFUL DAY.. Sincerely Jamie bryant

OH PLEASE! You Obviously are an addict and need to get help yourself, to think meth is not addictive or dangerous? What planet do you live on, obviously not Earth. Just sayin.

We wouldn't want people selling things that other people want to buy, now, would we? Fasting Badger, if you know (and you do know) that certain people about one drug, why, oh why, would you believe what they say about any other? And Megan, meth has nothing to do with the devil. It's just a drug. Not, as drugs go,. particularly dangerous or addictive or even very popular. And people who get arrested for using it don't qualify for rehab. They don't get "help." They go to prison. For what they do to themselves. You ever been in prison, Megan?

When authorities like Yavapai County Attorney Polk vilify marijuana they diminish their credibility when it comes to the very real dangers of drugs like meth. The tactic of lumping them all together in order to justify the war on drugs is a sham.

I'm not so sure about the "best of the best"... As far as I know, nobody forced her and it's not exactly like meth is an "unknown". Sometimes we can learn from the experience of others. You don't need to touch fire to know it's hot.

Let's hope her life gets turned around quickly.

So, I wonder what her charges will be????? Meth is the devils advocate and will suck in even the best of the best. She needs a rehab for sure. I hope she gets the help she needs, cuz meth is ugly!!!
