KINGMAN – The Kingman police department reports a significant drug seizure following a Nov. 28 traffic stop. Deputy police chief Joel Freed said officers conducting traffic enforcement on westbound Interstate 40 pulled over a van after observing it being in an erratic manner and nearly colliding with another vehicle at mile post 56 at about 6:15 p.m.
Officers reportedly made contact with the driver, Robert Romero, 45, and his passenger Andrew Harrison, 45, both of Kingman. A Mohave County sheriff’s office deputy and his K9 partner arrived to assist with the stop before the drug dog alerted to the presence of illegal substances.
“Romero and Harrison were detained and a search of the vehicle found approximately 4,000 pills that tested positive for Fentanyl and a loaded handgun,” Freed said. He said both men were arrested and booked into the Adult Detention facility on narcotics related charges.
