Prescott AZ (Janaury 16, 2021) – It’s day 16 of Yavapai Silent Witness’ CATCH 22 Program. Today Yavapai County Law Enforcement is asking for the public’s help in finding fugitive Jendayi Aminah McMillian. On February 19, 2015 the vehicle McMillian was a passenger in, was pulled over by a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Deputy on I40 at milepost 138 for failing to maintain a single lane and weaving repeatedly.
Upon being contacted the driver and McMillian told the deputy they were on their way to a cancer treatment center where the driver, was going for treatment. None of the occupants knew where this center was other than in Arizona. Due to many conflicting statements, stories with no details, and obvious nervousness above what would be expected during a normal traffic stop, the Deputy believed the occupants of the vehicle may have been involved in criminal activity.
The deputy asked permission to search the vehicle and the driver granted it. In the center console, the deputy found tin foil with burnt heroin residue on it. The deputy then noticed the radio display in the dashboard lifted up to give access to the factory void under the dashboard. In that void, the deputy found 7 bindles of heroin. Jackson and McMillian were arrested and charged with Possession of Narcotic Drugs for Sale, Possession of Narcotic Drugs, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
McMillian was convicted but has violated her probation. She now has a nationwide extraditable no bond Probation Violation Warrant. McMillian is described as a 26-year-old African American female, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 165 pounds with Black hair and brown eyes. Her last known address was in the 4700 block of Rush Springs Drive Las Vegas, Nevada.
