YORK, Neb. (AP) - The York County Sheriff’s Department says one of its deputies seized 12 pounds of methamphetamine during a routine traffic stop.

The York News-Times reports that the deputy found the meth Tuesday afternoon after stopping a car in York in southeast Nebraska.

Lt. Paul Vrbka says the deputy was on patrol when he stopped a vehicle for suspicion of a traffic violation. Vrbka says the driver gave consent to search the vehicle and during that search, he found the methamphetamine.

The street value of the meth is estimated at $520,000.

Two people - a 36-year-old woman from Las Vegas and a 35-year-old woman from New Jersey - were arrested. Both remained Wednesday at the York County Jail on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to deliver.
