COTTONWOOD — A 38-year-old Cottonwood man is wanted for dangerous drug and paraphernalia possession and three counts of felony flight after fleeing from police at a local grocery store.

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking (PANT) are asking the public’s help in locating Michael Archer, 38, of Cottonwood, after police attempted to apprehend him Tuesday, Oct. 26, at the Fry’s Food and Drugstore parking lot, 1100 State Route 260, during a traffic stop.

“Archer fled in his red-colored Mercedes-Benz sedan and is currently at large,” Yavapai Silent Witness spokesperson Chris Wilson said in a statement Thursday, Oct. 28.

PANT obtained a search warrant of Archer’s home and found methamphetamine and paraphernalia.

Archer is described at a 5-foot-10 male with black hair and black eyes, and has been arrested in the past for multiple counts of dangerous drug possession, as well as sales, fraud and traffic violations.
