KINGMAN – Authorities say Lisa Marie McKeever, 35, of Golden Valley, and Robert Wayne Romero, 40, of Kingman were arrested Friday after Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies found them in possession of methamphetamine, paraphernalia, a scale and a handgun.

Deputies were responding to an unrelated incident in the 3500 block of Dove Lane when they observed the open front door of a property which they knew to be abandoned. Upon conducting a safety sweep of the residence, McKeever and Romero took off in different directions.
