Bullhead City police arrest man in meth case

BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. -- Authorities in northwestern Arizona said a suspected illegal immigrant is in custody after five pounds of methamphetamine was found inside his home.

Bullhead City police said 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 said 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.
