WICKENBURG, Ariz. (AP) - Maricopa County Sheriff’s detectives have seized about 6 ½ pounds of methamphetamine off a passenger bus near Wickenburg that was headed for Las Vegas.

Sheriff’s officials said Thursday that the bus was stopped on U.S. 60 for speeding.

Detectives used a narcotics dog around the outside of the bus and it alerted deputies to a storage compartment under the passenger area.

Authorities opened a duffel bag and found six individually wrapped bundles hidden in the base.

Detectives attempted to identify the owner of the bag but nobody claimed it.

The bus driver and all the passengers were released and continued their trip to Nevada.
