PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Two men from New Mexico have been arrested in central Arizona after authorities found 6 ½ pounds of methamphetamine in their car.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say 35-year-old Eduardo Villalobos-Pizarro and 39-year-old Edger Rivera-Prieto remained jailed Wednesday, each on $150,000 bond.

They both are being held on suspicion of the transportation and sale of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff’s officials say a deputy pulled over a pickup truck for a moving violation May 31 near Prescott.

The deputy says Villalobos-Pizarro was the driver and seemed extremely nervous.

A subsequent search of the truck resulted in the seizure of a black plastic bundle containing more than one pound of methamphetamine and five pounds of packaged meth inside a food box in the rear passenger compartment.
