Search warrant yields four arrests at BC home

Four people were arrested last week after a search warrant was executed at a Boulder City residence where police say methamphetamine was sold.

On Friday, Boulder City Police, with the assistance of the Henderson Police and Metropolitan Police Department SWAT teams, arrested Curtis Shafer, 34; Scott Davis, 39; Doshia Hudson, 38; and Ashley Schneider, 24, at 1733 Red Mountain Drive. All four live at the residence, police said.

Shafer was booked into Clark County Detention Center on 14 charges and is being held on $440,000 bail. Shafer’s charges include two counts of sale of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, violation of the uniform controlled substances act, use of controlled substance in the presence of a child and operating a place for the sale/use/gift of controlled substance.

Police said Shafer had sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant.

Shafer also was charged with five counts of possession of stolen property and possession of a dangerous weapon because items believed to be stolen from an off-duty police officer’s vehicle were found at the residence, police said.

Police found “a bunch of different equipment” including a riot shield, a vest, knives and bags containing citations and other items that were stolen from a Las Vegas Detention and Enforcement officer last year, Boulder City Police Detective Sgt. John Glenn.

Davis was booked into the detention center and is being held on $60,000 bail. Charges against him include the use of a controlled substance in the presence of a child, possession of a dangerous weapon, two counts of possession of stolen property and being a felon and failing to change his address.

Police said the minor-related charges against Shafer and Davis involved a teenage neighbor. However, a child lived at the residence and Child Protective Services responded to investigate the living conditions, police said.

Hudson was charged with possession of marijuana and obstructing a police officer; she was taken to Henderson Detention Center, where she posted bail.

Schneider also was charged with obstructing a police officer and taken to Henderson Detention Center, where she posted bail.

Shafer and Davis are scheduled to appear at 1 p.m. March 11 at Boulder Township Justice Court.

Hudson is scheduled to appear at 10 a.m. April 8 at Boulder City Municipal Court, and Schneider is scheduled to appear at the municipal court at 10 a.m. April 1.
