SIERRA VISTA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Several people were arrested when the Sierra Vista Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Homeland Security Investigations, and the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at a Sierra Vista residence on Thursday, March 30, according to a recent release. 

The warrant was served at a home in the 200 block of North 3rd Street, according to the release, which resulted in the arrest of three adults and the referral of a juvenile.  The FBI had arrest warrants for individuals inside the residence, and the SVPD Community Response Team had been investigating alleged illegal drug activity at the same home.  This prompted the two groups to work together.  

Two Sierra Vista residents, Fauto Valazquez and Phoelix Begay were taken into FBI custody during the search.  Valazquez at the home in the 200 block of North 3rd Street, and Begay at a home in the 300 block of North 5th Street.

A 17-year-old was also arrested on three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of promoting prison contraband, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the release.  The juvenile has been booked into the Cochise County Juvenile Detention Center. 

There is still an active arrest warrant from the FBI for 40-year-old Elfrida resident, Brian Myers.
