Texas Highway Patrol recovers 56 pounds of cocaine and meth

The Texas Highway Patrol has successfully stopped the trafficking of a huge amount of cocaine and methamphetamine that was reportedly headed towards Oklahoma City. The intercepted package weighed around 56 pounds and was seized by the authorities during a recent operation. This is a major victory for the highway patrol, as it has prevented these illegal drugs from reaching their intended destination and potentially causing harm to the local community. The authorities are continuing their efforts to curb drug trafficking and keep our roads safe.

Before reaching Oklahoma City, a shipment of hazardous street drugs was successfully intercepted.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) recently made a significant drug bust during a traffic stop in Carson County. A Texas Highway Patrol trooper pulled over the vehicle, and upon inspection, found 54 pounds of suspected cocaine and two pounds of suspected methamphetamine. The DPS seized the drugs, and the investigation is ongoing.

According to authorities, a DPS trooper pulled over a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee for a traffic violation on October 9th, a little after 4 in the afternoon while it was traveling east on I-40 near Conway.

As per the DPS report, while conducting the stop, the trooper came across an aftermarket floor compartment that contained 18 bundles of cocaine and two bundles of methamphetamine, all wrapped in plastic.

As he conducted his search, he stumbled upon a pair of packages containing cocaine and another pair containing methamphetamine, all hidden away in the luggage compartment.

At the age of 22, Christopher Torres found himself in legal trouble as he was arrested and faced charges of possessing a controlled substance, which was considered a felony offense.

After being taken into custody, Torres was transported to the Carson County Jail where he was booked.

According to DPS, the drugs were allegedly transported all the way from Mexico to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
