A state trooper arrested two California men Monday on drug charges after the officer searched a motor home in Carson County and found 100 pounds of methamphetamine valued at more than $3.6 million, the Department of Public Safety said.
Shortly before 7 a.m. Monday, DPS said a trooper patrolling Interstate 40 pulled over a 1992 Winnebago motor home on a traffic violation. During the stop, the trooper searched the vehicle and found several bundles of methamphetamine hidden inside false compartments in the motor home, DPS said.
The driver, Felix Lopez Vasquez, 58, of Perris, Calif., and his passenger, Victor Hugo Gutierrez, 43, of Orange, Calif., were arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony, DPS said, and the men were booked into the Carson County Jail.
The DPS said the drugs were being transported from California to Tulsa, Okla.
