Over the past several months, detectives from the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit, which is part of the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team (MAGNET), have been conducting an investigation into a subject selling large quantities of methamphetamine throughout Lake Havasu City.

On November 10, 2020 at approximately 6:00 P.M the Lake Havasu City Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit served a search warrant at a residence in the 3000 block of Pepperwood Drive. With the assistance of the LHCPD K-9 “Rocky”, approximately 199 grams (7 ounces) of methamphetamine were located in the home. 

As a result of the investigation, 69-year old Lake Havasu City resident David L. Obermeyer was arrested and charged with possession of dangerous drugs for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During his initial appearances, David L. Obermeyer was released to the pre-trial services program and ordered to report to the Mohave County Probation Department.

In a separate investigation, the LHCPD Special Investigations Unit observed a subject in the 2900 block of Kiowa Ave who was known to have four active felony warrants for his arrest for prior sales of methamphetamine in Lake Havasu City.  

Officers arrested the subject, 53-year old Lake Havasu City resident Kurt T. McCoy.   McCoy was found in possession of 85 grams (3 ounces) of methamphetamine and a scale when he was arrested. McCoy was transported to the hospital for unknown medical reasons. McCoy later fled the hospital after being admitted and remains at large.
