Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Danny Wayne Rutherford, 30 of Bullhead City, for Dangerous Drug Possession, Drug Paraphernalia Possession, Taking the Identity of Another, all felonies, and three active arrest warrants. On Saturday (5/29) at 12:07, deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area of Boundary Cone Rd. MP 5.

Deputies made contact with the driver, later identified as Rutherford, and a female passenger. Rutherford gave deputies a false name and when deputies attempted a records search for the name given, discovered the discrepancy. Rutherford admitted to giving the false name because he had an active warrant.

The female passenger, who was also the registered owner of the vehicle, gave consent to search the vehicle and deputies located 15 grams of methamphetamine and a digital scale inside the car. Rutherford claimed possession of the methamphetamine and the female passenger was released from the scene. Danny Wayne Rutherford was transported to the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in Kingman without incident.
