A Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputy arrested an Iowa man Saturday near Cordes Junction on charges of possession of narcotics, possession of marijuana, possession of prescription drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Travis Moseley, 30, was driving on Interstate 17 at around 5 p.m. when the deputy pulled him over for speeding, said Dwight D'Evelyn, YCSO spokesman.

The deputy's dog "Elliot" sniffed the car and alerted the deputy to drugs after Moseley admitted he had marijuana in a bag on the passenger seat.

Moseley also had 170 new drug paraphernalia items in his car, including pipes and bongs. A bong is a water pipe that uses water to cool marijuana smoke before it enters a user's lungs.

The deputy also found booklets about drug paraphernalia pricing in Moseley's car.

Moseley - who was driving on a suspended license - told the deputy that he intended to sell the pipes and bongs to pay for his move from Phoenix to Iowa, D'Evelyn said.

The deputy booked Moseley into the Prescott Detention Center.
