Police investigating activity at a vacant lot off Trinity Drive arrested an 18-year-old Los Alamos man April 9 on two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of marijuana and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

At the scene, Los Alamos Police Officer Gabriel Nieto observed three passengers in the vehicle.

Isaiah Aylmer was in one of the rear passenger seats of the vehicle.

“Due to the hidden location they are at and previous graffiti issues in the area, I asked them for identification,” said Nieto in his report.

Nieto then asked who owned a black bag and two backpacks inside the vehicle. Isaiah Aylmer reportedly at first denied ownership of any of the items, but later confirmed that a backpack containing the illegal substances was his, according to police reports.

He allegedly told Nieto that when they saw him, the other two passengers in his vehicle allegedly passed Aylmer the substances and was told to hide them, according to the report.

Aylmer was released on his own recognizance and is due to appear in court for a preliminary hearing April 27.
