Sedona AZ (November 4, 2013)On October 29, 2013, just before 9:00 in the morning, 56-year-old Ritchie Davis and 50-year-old James Hodge, both from Arkansas, were arrested for Possession of Marijuana for Sale and Transportation of Marijuana for Sale.

YCSO K9 deputies stopped a tan 1998 Lincoln Town Car for several moving violations on east Arizona Interstate 40 in Yavapai County. Davis was the driver of the car and Hodge his passenger. While speaking with the two men, the deputy detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.

The pair indicated they were heading east from Oregon, and denied any knowledge of marijuana inside the vehicle.

Checking for the source of the odor, the deputies opened the trunk and found the marijuana smell intensified. Deputies found two spare tires, both flat and abnormally heavy. Further inspection revealed several packages of marijuana hidden inside the tires that weighed nearly 11 pounds.
