KINGMAN - A routine traffic stop ultimately led to the seizure of nearly two ounces of methamphetamine, $2,000 in cash and two loaded shotguns early Wednesday morning.
Brandon Michael Remling, 26, and Tiffany Autumn Martin, 35, of Kingman were arrested at about 2 a.m. after Kingman Police stopped the pair in the 2800 block of Kino Avenue.
A check revealed Martin had a misdemeanor warrant for contempt of court issued by Kingman Municipal Court.
Deputy Police Chief Rusty Cooper said officers found more than an ounce of methamphetamine and about $2,000 in cash, along with a loaded shotgun.
The pair face charges of transportation of dangerous drugs, sale of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
As a result of that arrest, Kingman Police stopped another vehicle about 30 minutes later in the area of Bank Street and Northern Avenue with Eric A. Norman, 31, and 24-year-old Heather D. Arzoomanian inside.
Nearly an ounce of meth and a loaded shotgun were found in the vehicle, according to Cooper.
The pair was charged with the same drug offenses as Remling and Martin, as well as with a misdemeanor charge of false reporting to police as both allegedly attempted to hide their identities. Additionally, Arzoomanian was wanted on a felony warrant for a probation violation.
Cooper said additional charges are pending.
