WASHINGTON, Mo. (AP) - Drug investigators in eastern Missouri are reporting the seizure of nearly nine pounds of crystal methamphetamine from a Texas trucker.

The Washington Missourian (bit.ly/1utVieU ) reports that the drugs were found Friday morning after a truck driver from Brownsville, Texas, completed a delivery to a business in Union. Local and federal narcotics agents arrested the man but did not immediately release his name.

Detective Sgt. Jason Grellner of the Franklin County Narcotics Enforcement Unit said the drugs had a street value of nearly $500,000.
