SAFFORD – Cracks in a windshield led to the driver facing DUI Alcohol or Drugs charges, and a passenger looking at possession of prescription only drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving weapons charges.
Safford Police stopped a vehicle driven by Jesus Vasquez along U.S. Highway 70. A records check found Vasquez was driving without a valid license.
Meanwhile, one of the passengers in the vehicle was discovered to have a fixed-blade knife in his possession, as well as a syringe and prescription medications for which he had no prescription.
That led to a search of the vehicle, which turned up drug paraphernalia.
Failed field sobriety tests, and reportedly admitting to smoking meth the nigh before, led to Vasquez being taken into custody for DUI.
The passenger, Robert Evan Moreno, is facing charges of possession of a prescription-only drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and misconduct involving weapons.
Both cases were forwarded to Graham County Attorney’s Office.
