Drug Stops Lands 6 in Jail, $500,000 in Drugs

Three different stops along Interstate 40 Thursday net DPS troopers over half a million dollars worth of drugs.

A Department of Public Safety spokesman says the first stop happened Thursday morning just east of Vega. He says $315,000 dollars worth of marijuana was found inside the luggage racks of an RV.

The second happened around noon just three miles east of Amarillo where they say they found $8,000 dollars worth of marijuana in the trunk.

The third stop netted troopers nearly almost $200,000 dollars of marijuana near Mclean.
