ABILENE, Kan. (AP) — A traffic stop in northeast Kansas led to the discovery of 68 pounds of methamphetamine.

Dickinson County Sheriff Gareth Hoffman said a county drug unit stopped a truck pulling a U-Haul near Abilene on Monday.

KSAL reports a drug dog alerted to the vehicle and a search of the U-Haul found the meth, with a street value of $1 million.

Hoffman says 35-year-old Juan Carlos Garcia, of Southgate, California, was arrested and faces numerous charges including the possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.
