The La Paz County Narcotics Task Force served a search warrant on the home of an Upriver Parker resident Friday, arresting the man for possession of dangerous drugs for sale.
At approximately 1:30pm the Task Force served a search warrant on the home of Robert Burrer, during which detectives allegedly located a little over a half-pound of methamphetamine for sale in Burrer’s residence. The investigation is the result of a series of arrests and events that provided information leading the detectives to Burrer’s home. Burrer has been suspected of dealing methamphetamine in the Parker/La Paz County area for several years.
Burrer is currently in custody at the La Paz County Detention Facility and is awaiting his initial court appearance at the Parker Justice Court. He was booked into jail for being suspected of “possession of dangerous drugs for sale”, a class 2 felony.
Sheriff John Drum says he is “very happy” with the results that the Task Force has had on the CRIT Valley, Town of Parker and La Paz County over the past few weeks. “We believe that the last three arrests of Ruth Bartley, Jose Hernandez and now Robert Burrer will have a significant impact on methamphetamine sales throughout the entire County/CRIT Reservation,” he said.
All suspects are to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Any information regarding any illegal activity can be directed at your local law enforcement agency or to the Task Force directly at (928) 669-9645. Anonymous information can be sent at lapazsheriff.org.
