SHAMROCK -- The DPS made a huge discovery during a traffic stop. They found more than $200,000 in stolen jewelry and precious metals.
It happened on I-40, near Shamrock in Wheeler county on Saturday.
Troopers say they pulled the driver of a Chevy Malibu over on a traffic stop.
That's when they say they used a K-9 to search the vehicle and found the stolen items hidden in the trunk side pannels.
Troopers say all of the items had barcodes on them that were traced back to a Macy's Department Store in Birmingham, Alabama.
The driver was arrested and booked into the Wheeler county jail.
