A man was arrested for allegedly trafficking in more than 27 pounds of methamphetamine.

According to the Texas County Court Clerk’s Office, Jesus Chavez, 33, was driving a 2008 red Ford Mustang bearing a Missouri license plate and pulled over for speeding.

A reort in the Guymon Daily Herald goes on to say that officers asked Chavez to search the vehicle for unknown reason. Chavez gave officers permission to search the vehicle.
