Man booked after SUV carrying pot ran from police

TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima County authorities say they have arrested a 19-
year-
old after being led on a car chase and finding almost 100 pounds of
marijuana in the vehicle he was traveling in.

The Arizona Daily Star
reports that Zenas U. Johnson was booked on suspicion of possession of
marijuana, transportation of marijuana for sale, possession of drug
paraphernalia and unlawful flight from law enforcement.

The arrest occurred after a Pima County sheriff’s deputy tried to stop an
SUV
that drove onto a road’s dirt shoulder Friday night.

The SUV eventually stopped in the middle of the road, but the driver then
took
off as the deputy approached.

The deputy chased the SUV, which stopped in a parking lot.

Several people ran from the vehicle, but deputies took the driver into
custody.
