MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say two Interstate 5 traffic stops in three days in southern Oregon have netted about 29 pounds of crystal methamphetamine bound from southern California to Washington state.

Lt. Josh Brooks said Monday that a trooper stopped a vehicle on April 1 for a traffic infraction. During a search, a narcotics dog found about 28 pounds of meth in a cardboard box in the trunk. Officers arrested the 40-year-old driver, from Washington state, and booked him into the Jackson County Jail for investigation of possession, delivery and manufacturing of a controlled substance. They say that shipment was bound for Seattle.

On April 3, Brooks says a pound of meth was found after a trooper made a traffic stop on the interstate. In that case, a 44-year-old Tacoma, Washington, man was arrested for investigation of possession, distribution and manufacturing of a controlled substance. Brooks says that meth was headed to Tacoma.
