Two Colorado residents are under arrest for allegedly trafficking more than $100,00 in drugs.

On April 2, at approximately 3:53 p.m., a Gila County Drug, Gang, and Violent Crimes Task Force deputy stopped a vehicle on State Route 87 on the Tonto Apache Reservation, according to a press release from the GCSO.

Additional GCSO deputies, along with the Arizona Department of Public Safety, responded to assist. A Gila County K9 alerted to a drug odor emitting from the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, officers found approximately 536 grams of heroin, 482 grams of methamphetamine and 400 fentanyl pills. The heroin has a street value of $67,000, the meth, $48,200 and the fentanyl pills, $8,000.

Amber Moglilo, 39, and Javier Gonzalez, 41, both of Westminster, Colo., were arrested on charges of transportation of a dangerous drug for sale, possession of a dangerous drug for sale, transportation of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of a narcotic drug for sale, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Moglilo was also arrested for promoting prison contraband.

Sheriff J. Adam Shepherd thanked DPS for their collaborated efforts.
