ASH FORK, Ariz. (AP) - Two Texas residents have been arrested in Arizona after authorities say drugs were found in their vehicle.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say 24-year-old Ronney Luna and his passenger, 23-year-old Brooke Newell, remained jailed Tuesday.

The man and woman each are being held on $50,000 bonds on suspicion of marijuana possession, transporting a narcotic drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and other charges.

It’s unclear if either has a lawyer yet.

A sheriff’s deputy stopped the couple’s car for a moving violation Monday on Interstate 40 near Ash Fork.

The deputy smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle’s interior and reported finding 38 pounds of marijuana in the trunk and 12 pounds of marijuana edibles in the back seat.

Sheriff’s officials say a half-gram of cocaine also was found in Newell’s clothing.
