LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in western Arizona say a man has been arrested for allegedly having heroin concealed inside his body.

Lake Havasu City police say 44-year-old William Brooks is being held on a $250,000 cash-only bond after his initial court appearance.

He was taken into custody Saturday after a traffic stop on State Route 95.

A narcotics-sniffing dog from the Bullhead City Police Department alerted officers to several areas of the vehicle.

Police say numerous items of drug paraphernalia were located along with a .38-caliber handgun.

Detectives believed Brooks had concealed a bag of drugs within his body prior to the traffic stop.

A search warrant was obtained and Brooks was taken to the Havasu Regional Medical Center’s emergency room.

Police say about 37 grams of heroin in a packet was retrieved.
