    Mount Shasta, Calif. — Thirty pounds of meth, two ounces of cocaine, heroin, ecstasy pills and a handgun were seized during two separate traffic stops on Interstate 5 over the weekend, according to reports from the California Highway Patrol. Four people were arrested, but the names of two of them are being withheld pending further investigation.

    On Saturday, June 9, at 5:40 p.m. CHP officers from the Mt. Shasta office made a routine traffic stop on northbound I-5 near Mount Shasta, south of the Highway 89 interchange, according to a press release. During the course of the stop, officers discovered 30 pounds of methamphetamine, the press release stated.

    Two men were arrested, however, their names are not being released at this time, said the CHP. They were booked into Siskiyou County Jail and charged with Possession, Sales & Transportation of Methamphetamines.

    The investigation was turned over to the Siskiyou County-Wide Interagency Narcotics Task Force, the CHP said.

    On Sunday, at 7:30 p.m., CHP officers made a routine traffic stop at the same location. Officers found approximately two ounces of heroin, 50 ecstacy pills and a handgun inside the vehicle, according to the press release.

    Ms. Simone Muro, 21, and Mr. Sedale Threets, 23, both of Medford, Oregon were arrested and charged with possession and transportation of cocaine, as well as possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony, the CHP said.

    My name is Jason Jones. I'm from Rochester, MN and I'm 35 years old. I scrap metal and work as grounds keeper at a local trailer park. In the winter, I shovel a bunch of driveways and sidewalks to make some extra money and to stay busy. In my free time, I try to find interesting articles about the war on drugs that I can post on Drugs-Forum, so that the information can reach a wider audience.

    There's no way this was a routine traffic stop, the police are just trying to cover for information that has come from a well placed informant which the police do not want found out or shot. The statistics required to hit this amount of stuff with only two stops would be crazy, and you know the informant got paid a fat wedge for this information. Unless hes an undercover cop

    You as a Brit seem to have good knowledge of how California police works.
    This was Highway Patrol doing the stops, not the FBI.

    Many offenders are caught by chance in traffic controls, and that police have found something to investigate further says nothing on how, -if- they got info beforehand.

    I think you are looking too many conspiracy videos.

    I think it's entirely possible that they conjured up this story to protect their informant, but I also think it's possible that this was a chance encounter.
