FAYETTE COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A traffic stop in Fayette County led authorities to approximately $1 million worth of methamphetamine.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says the discovery was made on Friday afternoon along Interstate 10. Once the deputy spoke to the driver and his passenger, he asked if he could search the vehicle.
With the help of the K9 unit, authorities found two fire extinguishers in the vehicle that were stuffed with 23 pounds of meth.
The driver Vidal Rodriguez, 24 and his passenger David Sanchez, 23, were arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance.
A similar bust, also involving fire extinguishers, resulted in $1.3 million worth of the drug being found.
