CAMP VERDE – Monday, Cher Ann Loken appeared in Yavapai County Superior Court in custody before Judge Michael R. Bluff in Camp Verde.

According to a news release from Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office Media Relations Coordinator Dwight D’Evelyn, Loken, of Mesa, was served with a search warrant at her home that led detectives to discover evidence confirming Loken, 45, was preparing to smuggle methamphetamine.

The methamphetamine was intended to be shipped to Levi Jones via US mail. Jones is charged with murder for a shooting at the Camp Verde Circle K in October and is now facing murder-for-hire charges for attempting to arrange the murder of his codefendant in the homicide case.

According to court documents, Loken had agreed with Jones that one of them would engage in conduct constituting the offense of promoting prison contraband. The two exchanged telephone conversation with the intent to smuggle methamphetamine into the Yavapai County Jail, a class 2 felony.

Loken’s second case management conference is scheduled for Oct. 9.

If you drink hard liquor and smoke cigarettes you might as well be doing meth. They are equally damaging to individuals and families, and equally addictive: I know personally, been addicted to all three and quit all three. No god, no support group, just pranayama and a determined will. I sincerely hope that someday all you drinkers have your children kidnapped by the state and you are forced to watch as others raise your children. There are children in this community that get beaten by their drunk parents and yet for some reason they don't get their kids taken away. But have a little baggie of powder, no matter how good a parent you might be, and they will terrorize you at gun point and take your children. You people and your hypocrisy sicken me.
