Two people are behind bars after motorists traveling south bound on U.S. 287 near Huntington Lane saw a flashing sign warning of a drug check point ahead, and that the last exit before the check point was coming up.

The sign was a part of a highway drug interdiction involving Wichita Falls Police, Wichita County Deputies, and state troopers.

We found no actual check point, and such operations typically focus on drivers taking the exit, with officers looking for suspicious actions or traffic violations such as failure to signal before exiting.

Some law enforcement agencies began setting up such operations after courts ruled random stops to check for drugs or other illegal items were unconstitutional and stopping every car taking the exit was also illegal.

Multiple stops were made, but we know of only one arrest at this time.

Officers stopped a black Infiniti G37 on Huntington Lane after the vehicle exited the highway without signaling.

WFPD K-9 alerted to the presence of narcotic odor within the vehicle and after a search of the vehicle officers say they found a bag containing 15 grams of crystal methamphetamine.

32-year-old Glenda Kay Schumann and 20-year-old Meri Joyce Logston were arrested and charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.
