KINGMAN – Driving around with expired license tags led to a California man getting a ride to Mohave County jail.

Deputies noticed a black SUV had expired license tags, conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the occupant of the vehicle, Jay Randall Frogozo, 19, of Mission Hills, California.

Authorities say they noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Deputies asked if there were any weapons in the vehicle, and Frogozo made a movement toward the seat. He was quickly detained, officers searched the vehicle and found a revolver under the seat.

Frogoza allegedly admitted to deputies he was a prohibited possessor. Authorities report they continued a search of the vehicle and found two grams of marijuana and a glass smoking pipe.
