Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Melina Ramona Garcia, 42 of Needles, for Dangerous Drug Possession for Sale, Transporting Dangerous Drugs for Sale, and Drug Paraphernalia Possession, all felonies.

On Friday (11/25) at 4 PM, deputies were on patrol in the area of Highway 95 and Laguna Rd., when they observed Garcia driving a white sedan travelling southbound on Highway 95. Deputies recognized the vehicle from a previous incident when Garcia admitted she did not have a valid driver’s license. A records check revealed Garcia’s license was suspended and deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the area of Courtwright Rd. and Highway 95.

Deputies contacted Garcia, who was identified as the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle. Garcia could not provide a valid driver’s license or vehicle insurance and she was asked to step out of the vehicle. Deputies advised that the vehicle was going to be towed and a search of the vehicle was conducted. The search revealed a clear baggie containing a large amount of a white crystal-like substance located in Garcia’s purse, along with items of drug paraphernalia. When asked, Garcia admitted the substance was methamphetamine.

Melina Ramona Garcia was arrested and transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman without incident. The substance was later weighed, revealing a total weight of 3.21 ounces on methamphetamine.
