FORT MOHAVE — A duo from Bullhead City was arrested on various drug charges after being pulled over by Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

MCSO deputies arrested Trevor David Elder, 27, of Bullhead City, and Antonio Raymond Vallejos, 21, of Bullhead City.

Deputies conducted a traffic stop in the area of Calle Agrada Drive and Paso Sur Drive and identified the driver as Elder, and the passenger as Vallejos. According to MCSO, deputies immediately detected the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

MCSO said a records check revealed an active arrest warrant and a suspended driver’s license for Elder. A pat search of Vallejos reportedly revealed two boxes of cannabis vaporization oils and marijuana. A search of the vehicle allegedly revealed 8.3 grams of methamphetamine and a glass pipe.

Elder was arrested for felony dangerous drug possession, misdemeanor driving with a suspended license and two active arrest warrants.

Vallejos was arrested for marijuana possession, dangerous drug possession and drug paraphernalia possession, all felonies.

Both men were booked into Mohave County Adult Detention Facility without incident.
