August 7, 2019

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a driver after finding 67 pounds (30 kilograms) of methamphetamine in his car during a Southern California traffic stop.

The Ventura County Star reports Wednesday that a sheriff’s deputy pulled the car over around 2 a.m. last Friday in Thousand Oaks and a K-9 search uncovered $600,000 worth of meth in the car.

The newspaper says Oscar Guadalupe Sainz Ponce of Hemet was wanted on a warrant for driving with a suspended license. He now could face drug charges.

It’s not immediately known whether the 49-year-old has an attorney.
