PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office says they arrested three men on drug charges after several pounds of marijuana were found in a rental vehicle.

According to YCSO, a deputy came into contact with 28-year-old Rashon Buchanan, 29-year-old Allen Burnett, and 24-year-old Davonte Conley on July 20 after noticing their vehicle speeding on Interstate 17.

Buchanan was behind the wheel, and provided the deputy with a driver’s license and a copy of a rental agreement.

The deputy noticed that the agreement did not allow out of state travel, and that the car had been issued to a female resident of Michigan.

YCSO said that Buchanan became nervous while discussing the rental agreement, and was shaking while answering questions.

Burnett reportedly told the deputy that he had just moved to Mesa, Ariz., and was riding with Buchanan as he took Conley back to Michigan.

The deputy suspected that drugs might be in the vehicle, and called for a K9 unit.

The dog reportedly indicated that narcotics were inside the car, and a search of the vehicle turned up a suitcase in the trunk that contained more than six pounds of marijuana.

All three men were arrested and booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center.

Burnett and Conley have been charged with transportation of marijuana for sale, and possession of narcotics.

Burnett has since been release on $4,000 bond, while Conley remains in custody on $4,000 bond.

Buchanan has been charged with transportation of marijuana for sale, and possession of narcotics.

YCSO said it was also discovered that Buchanan had provided deputies with his brother’s driver’s license. As a result, he has also been charged with offer instrument with false information and identity theft.

Buchanan remains behind bars on a $6,000 bond.
