The DPS trooper stopped a 2016 Dodge Journey traveling east on I-40 near Bushland for a traffic violation. The trooper then discovered three plastic-wrapped packages of methamphetamine inside a suitcase.

The drugs are worth approximately $365,000.

The driver, Sonya Brown, 44, was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and was transported and booked into the Potter County jail.
