More than $1 million worth of m.eth and h.eroin found in couple’s truck, police say
HOUSTON, Texas — A man and woman have been a.rrested after a police chase led to what i.nvestigators are now calling a million dollar dr.ug bust.
The ch.ase began along the 9700 block of Tavenor Street in southeast Houston near Hobby Airport around 11:20 a.m. Monday.
It ended in a traffic jam along the Gulf Freeway feeder road near the South Loop.
During the a.rrest, officers discovered the couple had o.utstanding f.elony w.arrants. Police say they later found 10 kilos of m.eth inside the couple’s truck along with h.eroin.
I.nvestigators say both the man and woman surrendered peacefully once they were s.urrounded.
Police say the truck is registered out of Carrizo Springs, Texas, located about an hour and a half north of Laredo, which sits 30 minutes away from the border.
ABC13 Eyewitness News spoke with a private i.nvestigator and said the likelihood that the dr.ugs came from across the border is ‘very good.’
‘The likelihood that it involves one of the cartels is probably even better, since it’s from that area,” said private i.nvestigator Mark Stephens.
