HOLBROOK, Ariz. (AP) - A Texas woman has been arrested in eastern Arizona after 173 pounds of marijuana and nine pounds of hashish oil were found in her car.

Navajo County Sheriff’s officials say 47-year-old Hao Thi Pham has been booked into jail on suspicion of transportation of marijuana and a narcotic drug for sale plus possession of marijuana and a narcotic drug for sale.

It was unclear Monday if she has a lawyer yet.

Sheriff’s officials say the vehicle Pham was driving Sunday on Interstate 40 near Holbrook was stopped for speeding and another violation.

A traffic enforcement officer noticed items concealed under a blanket in the vehicle and drugs were detected by a trained canine.

Authorities say the hashish oil was broken down into one gram dosage units specifically packaged for sale.
