HOLBROOK, Ariz. -- Authorities said an Oklahoma man is in custody in northern Arizona in a drug case.

Navajo County Sheriff's officials said 69-year-old Jon Brion Harper of Oklahoma City is being held on suspicion of transportation of marijuana and possession of a dangerous drug.

He remains in the Navajo County Jail on $100,000 bond.

Sheriff's officials said Harper was arrested after a Nov. 1 traffic stop on Interstate 40 near Holbrook.

A task force seized about 16 pounds of high-grade marijuana and 8 grams of crystal methamphetamine.

Authorities said the marijuana had an estimated street value of $66,000 and the meth about $800.

Jail officials didn't immediately respond to a call Tuesday about whether Harper has an attorney yet for his case.
