A Tucson Man Is Found Guilty Of Drug And Weapons Charges In Yavapai County, And Is Wanted By Law Enforcement

A Tucson man was found guilty in a Yavapai County courtroom Thursday of drug and weapons charges. A jury found 32-year-old Abisai Urias guilty of transporting 40 pounds of meth, as well as possessing anabolic steroids for sale, and possessing a firearm during a drug offense. Urias’ jury trial followed a May 2022 traffic stop by a Cottonwood Police officer. The officer was trained to spot signs of drug trafficking, and questioned Urias, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle. He admitted there were steroids in the vehicle. A subsequent search uncovered vials of anabolic steroids, that Urias admitted he planned to sell, a loaded handgun in the driver’s door, and nearly 40 pounds of meth hidden in a duffle bag and a dog-food bag, which Urias admitted he planned to take to a nearby city. He is facing between five and over 30 years in prison. However, Urias is still at large as he failed to appear for trial. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Cottonwood Police Department or their local police department.
