KINGMAN – Glenn Donald Simpson, Jr., 37, of Kingman, was arrested by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday, March 14 on numerous felony allegations following a traffic stop for an unreadable license plate.

MCSO wrote in a news release that at approximately 3 a.m., deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for an unreadable license plate. Deputies made contact with the driver, identified as Simpson, and a female passenger.

Simpson reportedly advised deputies that he did not have an ID on him and that he believed his license was suspended.

When asked if there were any weapons in the vehicle, the sheriff’s office reports that Simpson advised he had a firearm in a shoulder holster on his person.

A pat search of Simpson revealed 1.1 grams of methamphetamine, according to MCSO. The weapon was found to have no serial number, or make or model markings.

Simpson was arrested on suspicion of theft/control of stolen property, possession of a weapon by a prohibited person, possession/use of a weapon during a drug offense, possession of a defaced weapon, dangerous drug possession and drug paraphernalia possession, all felonies.
