Isaiah Aylmer, 18, of Los Alamos is facing a second preliminary hearing April 27 in Los Alamos Magistrate Court after racking up new charges while out of jail on conditions of release on a March 19 felony charge of stealing a firearm.
Aylmer was charged April 9 with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to Court documents filed by Los Alamos Police Cpl. Gabriel Nieto, he was on patrol on 35th Street off Trinity Drive near the former Los Alamos National Laboratory parking area when he observed a vehicle parked behind some bushes and in the trees.
When Nieto approached the vehicle, three young men exited. He said due to the hidden location and previous graffiti he asked them for identification. One of them was Aylmer and the other two were minors. Nieto’s report indicates that he observed Aylmer and one of the minors to have red, watery and “pinpoint” eyes. Nieto asked them when was the last time they had smoked marijuana and they allegedly replied that they “hadn’t all day”.
Sgt. Ben Irving then arrived on the scene and was advised of the situation. After the three names were run by LAPD Dispatch, the two officers approached the three young men. Aylmer was placed in investigative custody for possible violation of his conditions of release from his existing case. One of the minors had a nationwide extraditable warrant from District Court.
While looking inside the vehicle, Nieto found a bag and two backpacks. All three suspects denied ownership of one of the backpacks so Nieto declared it abandoned property and began to take inventory of what was inside. His report states that when he opened the front pocket he immediately noted a strong odor of marijuana and located a white plastic cylinder containing marijuana. In another zippered pocket, he said he found a plastic bag containing a white powdery substance which was later identified as.3 grams of cocaine.
At this point, the two minors again denied the backpack belonged to either of them and then Aylmer alleged admitted that the backpack belonged to him but that he only owned the lotion, deodorant and cologne inside. He claimed that when they had seen Nieto arrive, the two minor had tossed the white container and two plastic bags to him and told him to hide them.
Aylmer and the minor with the outstanding warrant were arrested and the second minor’s mother was advised to come and pick him and the vehicle up.
