Texas Man Arrested On I-40 Near Ash Fork For Transporting Drugs

A Texas man was arrested last week for transporting around 30 pounds of marijuana. Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies pulled over 35-year-old Joshua Garcia for moving violations back on November 25th at around 3:45 p.m. on eastbound Interstate-40 in Ash Fork. While talking to Garcia, the deputy smelled an odor of marijuana coming from his 2007 Toyota Corolla. When asked about it, Garcia admitted to having pot inside the car. During a search of the vehicle, with K9 Vader, multiple one-pound bags were found in four garbage bags in the trunk. Also found inside the car was a backpack containing marijuana, a pipe, rolling papers and marijuana edibles. Garcia admitted transporting the pot to Texas for profit. Street value of the load is estimated to be $75-thousand dollars. Garcia was booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges related to the incident.
