BULLHEAD CITY, AZ (AP) -

Authorities in northwestern Arizona say an illegal immigrant is in custody after five pounds of methamphetamine was found inside his home.

Bullhead City police say 43-year-old Ramiro Gomez Zazueta is being held in suspicion of numerous drug charges and misconduct involving weapons.

He's been booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman and placed on an immigration hold.

Detectives began investigating Zazueta last October, saying he was suspected of selling large quantities of methamphetamine in the Bullhead City area.

Police pulled over Zazueta's vehicle Wednesday and said he didn't have a driver's license and gave them a false name.

They say 20 grams of meth was found in his jacket pocket and a search of Zazueta's home turned up $200,000 worth of meth plus four weapons and $10,000 in cash.

    Here's a revolutionary thought: The Carolina Panthers should invest in their secondary. And not with mid- to late-round picks or development projects, either. On April 26, the first night of the 2018 NFL Draft, Carolina should take a defensive back at No. 24. A day-one starter. A leader.

    In deciding whether the Carolina Panthers should shore up their secondary or give quarterback Cam Newton another weapon, I’m always going to lean toward an offensive playmaker. I’m not the only one who thinks that; so does Cam.
