The driver, 22-year-old Iris Rios from Douglas, was the only person in the SUV. She told the deputy she was traveling to Phoenix to visit a relative in the hospital. But Rios could not tell the deputy where the relative was being treated.

Rios is now charged with the following:

  • Possession of Cocaine
  • Possession of Cocaine for Sale
  • Transportation of Cocaine for Sale
