A traffic stop at US 287 South and Burnett Ranch Road led to the Wichita County K9 Interdiction Unit’s largest seizure so far this year.

Sheriff David Duke said it happened on October 14 around 2 p.m.

During the stop, the deputy said he observed signs of criminal activity.

A search of the vehicle yielded over 16 pounds of crystal meth and black tar heroin concealed within the vehicle.

The street value of the narcotics is over $750,000 dollars.

Sheriff Duke said Erika Victoria Lopez, 26, Reina Favebla Ordonez, 26, Javier Cauz Capote, 24, and Eduardo Felipe Hernandez, 38, were arrested and released to the Drug Enforcement Administration pending further federal investigation.

“Just to be able to get it off the street means it’s not going somewhere,” Duke said. “It’s not going to get in some other communities. It’s not going to be endangering other children or teenagers or other young people’s lives that may have a problem now that they just need help to get out of that problem.”
