Sixty pounds of bagged marijuana was found Thursday during a traffic stop near Kingman.

KINGMAN - A traffic stop on Interstate 40 Thursday afternoon led to the arrest of a California man who reportedly was carrying $240,000 worth of high-grade marijuana, prescription pain killers, hashish and $6,000 in cash.

An Arizona Department of Public Safety officer pulled over Eric M. Seltzer, 40, of North Hollywood, Calif., for a moving violation around 12:40 p.m. Thursday near milepost 50 on I-40.

The officer's K-9 alerted to the presence of drugs and a search of his rental car allegedly revealed 60 pound of marijuana, 30 hydrocodone pills, a small amount of hashish and $6,000.

Seltzer was arrested on felony charges of importation of marijuana for sale, possession of marijuana for sale, two counts of possession of narcotic drugs and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was booked into the Mohave County Jail without incident.

The Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team consisting of detectives from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Bullhead City Police Department, Lake Havasu City Police Department, Mohave County Sheriff's Office, Kingman Police Department and prosecutors from the Mohave County Attorney's Office assisted with the investigation.

Where does it say the defendant was driving while intoxicated? Yeah, I know, silly little details that only Uncle Anson knows apparently.

OK - The dealer was on prescription Vicodin. He was operating a motor vehicle. DUI is not confined to alcohol. He was pulled over for a moving violation.

Fox H - next time your tax money goes to reparation for victims , tell me it's a victimless crime. Or even worse that something happens to you or yours because someone is trying to support a habit or addiction. It takes 2 feet to walk a straight line. One left and one right.

A little reminder...

Even if the pills they found were prescribed to the suspect, if the pills were in one of those little pill holders they sell at pharmacies, rather than the original prescription bottle, he was breaking the law.

Something else the friendly pharmacist don't tell us in order to make a buck.

Yes Cheers to our DPS getting this guy, but what will happen when he gets into the Courts?? Big question there people of Kingman, do any of you know what really happens to these people after the arrest ?? Most times they get a slap on the hand and let out of Jail and go on there merry way and just get more drugs and become just a bit smarter about the way they go about there business, really that is the truth, (I know), so you may want to follow this case and see what really happens to this guy, because chances are he will walk away from this and that is very Sad but True, that is why we have such a BIG drug problem, the Police, DPS and Sheriff try and do there job, but once these people hit the Courts that is where it all falls apart, yes again Sad but True.

More wasted tax payer money spent on victimless crimes. Why not spend another trillion dollars on a unwinnable drug war. We got plenty of money in this county right?
