AMARILLO, Texas — An Interstate 40 traffic stop in the Texas panhandle has yielded $2 million worth of methamphetamine hidden in the hefty spare tire of an SUV.

The Potter County sheriff's office in Amarillo on Monday announced the seizure of 42 pounds of methamphetamine and the arrest of the driver.

Deputies on Friday stopped a sport utility vehicle and the driver gave officers permission to search it. Deputies found the spare tire seemed too dense. The truck was taken to an auto shop, where the tire was removed and the meth was discovered.

Sheriff's officials said the driver was booked on a charge of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.
