DPS seized close to 13 pounds of meth Wednesday after a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper stopped a vehicle in Oldham County.
At 3:38 p.m., a DPS Trooper stopped a 2018 Toyota Rav4 traveling east on I-40 near Vega for a traffic violation. The Trooper then discovered nine taped-wrapped bundles of meth concealed inside the spare tire.
DPS Special Agents and DEA Special Agents arrived on the scene to assist with the investigation. DEA Special Agents adopted the case.
The driver was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. He was transported and booked into the Randall County Jail.
The drugs allegedly were being transported from Los Angeles to Bentonville, Arkansas.
