A search warrant issued last week led to authorities finding stolen vehicles, drugs, guns and two human skulls at Meadows Auto near 1st Avenue and Country Club Drive in Mesa, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Following the Feb. 8 discovery, detectives with the DPS Vehicle Theft Task Force arrested two suspects on felony charges.

Property owner Eddie Meadows, 45, was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on multiple charges, including theft of means of transportation, possession of a weapon by a prohibited possessor and possession of a dangerous drug, DPS officials said.

Tara Montgomery, 40, was also booked into jail on numerous drug-related charges.

The skulls were turned over to the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office for further investigation, authorities said.

Approximately 2 pounds of methamphetamine, two rifles, one sawed-off shotgun were seized. The stolen vehicles included a 2008 Ford pickup truck, a 2016 Arctic Cat, a Clark forklift and four trailers, according to DPS.
