YUCCA–A traffic stop along Interstate 40 near Yucca on August 26 led local authorities to the discovery of close to 42 pounds of marijuana.

Kerry McNeal, 21, and Joseph Farr, 20, both from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma face charges of possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale, transportation of marijuana for sale, possession of narcotic drugs for sale, transportation of narcotic drugs for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Quentin Mehr said a trooper patrolling eastbound Interstate 40 around 10 a.m. Sunday morning conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle that was occupied by two males. During the stop, the trooper reportedly noticed signs of criminal activity. An agency assist was dispatched by DPS.

A Mohave County Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched around 9 a.m. Sunday to assist the DPS with K9 Chase, who at the scene reportedly gave a positive alert on several different areas of the vehicle.

A search reportedly uncovered 41.5 pound of marijuana, a pound of marijuana wax and eight plastic containers with around 3.5 grams of marijuana each. The combined street value of the marijuana and marijuana wax totaled $116,550.00.

McNeal and Farr were taken to the Mohave County jail in Kingman. McNeal is being held on a $50,000 bond and Farr is being held on a $25,000 bond.
