Local Politicians Closely Connected To Alleged Flagstaff Heroin Dealer

Flagstaff City Councilwoman Eva Putzova has taken up the cause of Frankie Madrid, a local activist accused of selling heroin and illegally possessing a handgun who is facing deportation to Mexico. She has started a Go Fund Me account for Madrid’s legal fees and so far has collected around $3,000 from 80 donors.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that “according to the police report, a backpack on the floor of the car he (Madrid) was in contained $700, drug paraphernalia, prescription opiates, heroin and a receipt with Madrid’s name on it. Police also found an unloaded gun in the front passenger seat…”  

Frankie Madrid has been an active participant in many local political causes including the campaigns of Flagstaff Councilmembers Coral Evans, Eva Putzova, and Celia Barotz as well as CD1 Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick’s campaign.

Donations to Putzova’s Go Fund Me page include a $25 donation from Flagstaff Unified School District Board Member Sarah Ells and a $50 donation from Coconino County Recorder Patty Hansen.
