YAVAPAI COUNTY SHERIFF’S K9 SEIZE $150,000 WORTH OF METHAMPHETAMINE DURING TRAFFIC STOP; MAN FROM SURPRISE, ARIZONA, ARRESTED
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office K9 deputies were conducting a routine patrol on I17 north of Sunset Point in Yavapai County when they noticed the driver of a white 2014 Nissan Altima was driving recklessly. The deputy pulled over the driver, 26-year-old Carlos Camargo-Urias of Surprise, Arizona.
During the traffic stop, there were several red flags and Camargo-Urias was extremely nervous, so deputies searched his vehicle. Inside, they found several vacuumed sealed bags of methamphetamine, weighing nearly 50lbs.
“This is the second major methamphetamine arrests our deputies have made in the last week,” said Sheriff David Rhodes. “We all know meth is dangerously addicting and is damaging to the body. I want to thank our K9 deputy for making sure these drugs didn’t make it out into our community.”
Camargo-Urias had a 17-year-old in the car with him. He is charged for possession of dangerous drugs for sale, transportation of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, and involving a minor in a drug offense. Bond is set at $500,000.
