FAYETTE COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A traffic stop along IH-10 in Fayette County yielded approximately 40 kilograms of liquid meth with a street value of $4 million, according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.

On Friday, K9 Lobos and his handler discovered the drugs in the fuel tank of a Dodge 2500 truck. Officials removed the bed of the truck and determined the fuel tank had been altered and a compartment built into the tank contained liquid meth.
