Authorities say a tip from a confidential informant leads them to arrest two men who travel to the metroplex to pick up and bring large amounts of meth to Texoma.

According to an arrest affidavit, the informant told authorities 65-year-old Stephen Wayne and 34-year-old Darrell McCoy often drive to fort worth to get the drugs and that they were making one such trip yesterday morning.

A Wichita County deputy and a district attorney's office investigator were able to track the pickup McCoy was driving and detained the men outside a gas station off Maurine St.

During a search of the truck, authorities say they found more than 150 grams of meth.

Both Wayne and McCoy were arrested for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance.

They remain in the Wichita County Jail on a $50-thousand bond each.
