No, the pair was not arrested for merely being Arizona residents (although, given our reputation throughout the country, could you really blame the police if they were?)
The two were arrested after police found 10 pounds of crystal meth lining the side walls of their car.
The drugs were sealed in five separate bags and are believed to have a street value of close to $200,000.
