AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - A state trooper discovered more than 14 pounds of methamphetamine valued at more than $515,000 in a vehicle during a traffic stop in the Texas Panhandle.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the trooper made the discovery Wednesday after stopping the vehicle traveling eastbound on Interstate 40 for a traffic violation. The stop was made about 30 miles east of Amarillo.

The two occupants of the vehicle, both from Oklahoma City, were arrested for possession of a controlled substance after the trooper discovered the 12 bags of methamphetamine in the vehicle.

DPS says the drugs were allegedly being transported from Phoenix to Oklahoma City.
