Lyon County man faces drug, weapon charges

A Lyon County man was taken into custody on Wednesday night after a traffic stop in the Gardnerville Ranchos allegedly revealed he had drugs and weapons.

Isidro Montoya-Acosta, 31, was taken into custody on charges of possession of a weapon by a prohibited person, possession of a sawed off shotgun, trafficking cocaine, possession and sales of a controlled substance and possession of a stolen weapon.

Montoya-Acosta was booked into Douglas County Jail around 10 p.m. Wednesday after he failed to stop at the stop sign at Yellow Jacket and Tillman Lane in a gray Toyota Prius.

Montoya-Acosta allegedly had a sawed-off unloaded AK47 in the vehicle with him. Deputies reported finding a small packet of what they believe to be methamphetamine in the back seat of the patrol vehicle.

According to East Fork Justice Court documents, he was involved in a drug and weapon sale in May at Topsy Lane.

An Indian Hills woman was taken into custody early Wednesday morning, accused of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery.

Deputies responded to an address on Opalite Drive for a domestic battery call around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

They took Stephanee R. Lawson, 30, into custody after the victim said she struck him with a shotgun and pointed a pistol at him. Both had been drinking, according to court documents.

Lawson was ordered released on her own recognizance with a GPS monitor.

A traffic stop resulted in the arrest of two people who had been convicted of felonies after a firearm and an open beer were found in the vehicle.

Valerie J. Aja-McCallister, 52, was driving on Monday night when a deputy stopped the blue Ford.

Her passenger, Robert M. Nadon, is a registered sex offender. Neither one of them was supposed to have a firearm, which is what deputies allegedly found under Aja McCallister’s seat.
