FORT MOHAVE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a Fort Mohave man and three runaway juveniles from Oklahoma have been arrested in northern Arizona.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies say 23-year-old Dustin Aaron Schafer was taken into custody early Tuesday along with a 17-year-old girl, a 15-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl. They say all the juveniles are from Norman, Okla.

Authorities say the teens and Schafer were in a car that was reported stolen in Oklahoma.

Deputies say Schafer allegedly had a plastic bag containing methamphetamine and was arrested on suspicion of possessing dangerous drugs.

The teens were booked into the Mohave County Juvenile Detention Center on suspicion of unlawful use of means of transportation. The 15-year-old boy also had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court.

Deputies notified the teens' parents in Oklahoma.
