KINGMAN - Kingman police seized nearly six ounces of methamphetamine, two handguns reportedly in the possession of an ex-felon and other items following a traffic stop on Andy Devine Avenue late Thursday afternoon.

Edward Shawn Mullins, 38, was stopped in the 2300 block of Andy Devine after investigators observed Mullins driving in the area. They knew he was wanted on a felony warrant.
