A man from Surprise was arrested Thursday after Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies seized $150-thousand worth of meth during a traffic stop on Interstate-17 north of Sunset Point. Deputies pulled over a 2014 white Nissan Altima, driven by 26-year-old Carlos Camargo-Urias, after authorities saw him driving recklessly. During the 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 meth, weighing nearly 50-pounds. He also had a 17-year-old in the car with him at the time. Camargo-Urias was arrested and 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 has been set at $500-thousand.
