HOLBROOK, Ariz. -- Four Arkansas residents were arrested in eastern Arizona after authorities seized $100,000 worth of liquid PCP during a traffic stop Monday.
The Navajo County Sheriff's Office said Jeremy Ford, 27, Christopher Kelly, 19, Jeramy Sanders, 27, and Kimberly Brown, 22, are being held on $25,000 bond each on suspicious of transportation and sales of a dangerous drug.
Ford and Brown both are from Little Rock, Kelly is from Hot Springs and Sanders is from Wrightsville.
A deputy stopped a rented SUV on Interstate 40 near Holbrook for a traffic violation and became suspicious when the occupants gave conflicting stories.
A search turned up a 2-gallon plastic gasoline can in the rear of the vehicle that authorities said contained 11 pounds of the hallucinogen PCP mixed with a petroleum-based liquid.
PCP, a hallucinogen, is a highly addictive synthetic drug that when mixed with petroleum-based liquid becomes an unstable mixture of chemicals. This amount of PCP, in liquid form, has an estimated value of $100,000, according to the sheriff's office.
The liquid and container were taken to a safe location. Using a small explosive device, authorities destroyed the liquid.
