Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies seized around ten-thousand fentanyl pills during a traffic stop on northbound Interstate-17 in Cordes Junction last week. A K9 deputy pulled over a gray Ford F-150 pickup truck at around 11:45 a.m. for several equipment violations and a moving violation. Driving was 23-year-old Leon Carlos-Uriel and 20-year-old Brayan Contreras Angulo was a passenger in the truck. Both men are from Phoenix. The deputy deployed his K9 to conduct a free air sniff and detected an odor. Inside the truck, the deputy found a McDonald’s bag containing two separate bags which held ten individual baggies of blue M30 pills. Carlos-Uriel admitted knowing about the bag, but not the contents. He told the deputy he was taking the package to unknown people in Camp Verde. Both men were booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on charges of transportation of narcotic drugs for sale and possession of narcotic drugs. They both remain in custody on a $50-thousand bond each.
