LITTLEFIELD, Ariz. – Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Joshua Skeet Keyes, 33, of Tooele, early Monday afternoon for felony possession of dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia.
At about 1:16 p.m., deputies conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 15 at milepost 11 and made contact with Keyes, the driver.
“The vehicle was headed northbound,” Trish Carter, public information specialist for the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, said. “The vehicle was following too closely to a vehicle in front of it.”
A records check showed Keyes had a suspended driver’s license.
“The vehicle was subsequently impounded due to the status of Mr. Keyes’ license,” Carter said.
An inventory of the vehicle, prior to impound, revealed a plastic bag containing marijuana residue and a white plastic bundle containing approximately 2.9 grams of mushrooms.
At that time, Keyes was taken into custody without incident. He was transported and booked into the Mesquite Jail in Nevada. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
