Scott Bliss is the man behind several highly controversial real estate developments, including the Indian Paintbrush Estates and the Bozeman Trail Ranches. According to police and court documents, Bliss was arrested near Amado, Arizona on December 5th, after United States Border Patrol service canines alerted patrol officers to the vehicle Bliss was driving.
After searching the vehicle, approximately 4.85 grams of methamphetamine, an AR-15 Semi-Automatic Assault Rifle with a bi-pod and home made silencer, as well as 24 grams of marijuana, were seized.
According to the latest information, Bliss was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and may face further charges in regard to illegal possession of firearms.
Bliss was released on a $25,000 bond and on December 23, and a judge signed an order allowing Bliss to enter a drug rehabilitation facility in Oregon.
Neither Bliss's attorney nor the prosecuting attorney has yet been able to be reached for comment.
