PRESCOTT, Arizona — Authorities say three people are in custody after the seizure of nearly five pounds of methamphetamine in north-central Arizona.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say deputies saw a car travelling more than 80 mph in a 65-mph speed zone on Interstate 17 in Camp Verde.

Deputies stopped the vehicle and talked to the 31-year-old driver, Marie Bonnesen of Peoria.

They say 24-year-old Xavier Alaniz of Goodyear and 20-year-old Harley Partch of Avondale were passengers.

A drug-sniffing dog was called in and alerted authorities to possible drugs in the car’s trunk.

Deputies say they found nearly five pounds of packaged methamphetamine, a loaded 9mm handgun, prescription medications and various drug paraphernalia.

Bonnesen, Alaniz and Partch are jailed on $60,000 bond apiece on various drug charges. It’s unclear if they have lawyers yet.
