The drugs were discovered after an officer observed a vehicle committing multiple traffic violations. After pulling over the vehicle, officers searched it and Diko found five pounds of meth inside.

The driver of the vehicle, 20-year-old Herber Jesus Salomon, told police he was heading to Phoenix to visit family. He was arrested and booked into jail.
