KINGMAN - A California truck driver faces serious drug charges after Arizona Department of Transportation officers discovered roughly 21 pounds of methamphetamine in his trailer with a potential street value of more than $900,000.

Javier P. Gaytan, 28, of Los Angeles had just entered Arizona from California at about 6:15 p.m. Friday when ADOT officers at the eastbound weigh station discovered he was wanted by Bullhead City Justice Court after he failed to appear for a false log book, a misdemeanor.

A load inspection resulted in the discovery of the methamphetamine in the trailer.

Detectives with the Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team assisted in the investigation, according to Kingman Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki, who said the origin and destination of the drug shipment is unknown at this point.

The investigation is ongoing. Gaytan was booked into the Mohave County jail on charges of transportation of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of dangerous drugs and the misdemeanor warrant.
