A state grand jury indicted Shane Dawson Stewart of Tucson on April 29 for allegedly transporting an estimated 3,000 pills containing fentanyl.

Stewart is charged with one count of conspiracy, one court of illegal control of a criminal enterprise and one count of transportation of a narcotic drug (fentanyl) for sale in the amount over the statutory threshold, according to a statement from Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

On April 23, Stewart was pulled over by an Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper on Interstate 10 at milepost 158 near Phoenix.

During the stop, Stewart reportedly consented to a search of his vehicle, which is when the trooper found a bag containing an estimated 3,000 pills containing fentanyl.
