KINGMAN – Two individuals were found to be allegedly trespassing a motel room in the 3300 block of Andy Devine Avenue Wednesday, and that led to more problems for the pair.

Joseph Henry Hardy, 23, of Kingman, and his 20-year-old girlfriend were purported to have been found with two ounces of methamphetamine ready for sale, assorted drug paraphernalia and a rifle.

Motel management had reported to Kingman Police Department that two subjects were in a room that was supposed to be unoccupied.

Police arrested Hardy with possession of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia, and weapons misconduct.

The female subject was issued a citation and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Authorities say Hardy admitted his involvement to the offenses and was booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility.
