Arizona after nearly two pounds of high-grade marijuana was found in his rental
car.

Francisco, is being held on suspicion of marijuana possession, transportation of
marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale.

It was unclear Tuesday if he has a lawyer.

A sheriff’s deputy stopped the car Geneve was driving on Interstate 10 in the
unincorporated area of Eloy for a traffic offense.

The deputy reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle
and noticed a clear film canister containing marijuana in the car’s open center
console.

Authorities say a search of the vehicle turned up a backpack containing 1.88
pounds of hydroponic marijuana and a digital scale.
