AMARILLO -- $50,000 worth of drugs are off the streets after a traffic stop, today.

It happened in Potter County on I-40 just west of Amarillo.

A deputy pulled over a Toyota Camry and found more than six and a half pounds of marijuana and a pound of hashish, inside.

The driver is in the Potter County Jail and charged with drug possession.

Officials say the drugs were picked up in California and were being transported to Arkansas.
