On February 6, the Sierra Vista Police Department’s Community Response Team (CRT) conducted a search warrant, with the help of the Tucson Police Department, in the 8800 block of East Eagle Creek Drive, in Tucson.
The search warrant was based on a long term investigation by CRT and lead to the arrest of Thomas “Tommy” Francis, a 40-year-old from Tucson.
During the search more than 300 grams of methamphetamine, 18.4 grams of marijuana, and .5 grams of cocaine were found inside the home. All suspected drugs were field tested with positive results.
CRT detectives also found several scales, numerous chemicals used for making methamphetamine, a piece of paper with instructions on how to make methamphetamine, as well as two assault rifles, three hand guns, three hunting rifles, a silencer, and two police style Kevlar bullet proof vests.
A criminal history check was done on Francis, which showed felony convictions in 1998 for Possession of Dangerous Drugs, Possession of Marijuana, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon. These convictions make him a convicted felon and a prohibited possessor.
Francis was arrested and charged with the following: Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale, Possession of Narcotic Drugs, Possession of Dangerous Drugs, Prohibited Possessor, Possession of Chemicals for the Purpose of Manufacturing Dangerous Drugs, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
He has since been booked into the Pima County Jail.
