Meth haul tops half million $
New Custer County sheriff’s deputy Marcus Williams, working his first night shift since his employment four days earlier, helped recover a nearly 12-pound stash of crystal methamphetamine Saturday out of a traffic stop on Interstate 40.
Lt. Jeff Maynard said Drug Enforcement Agency officials estimated the street value of the meth at more than half a million dollars.
Williams and Deputy Brady Quisenberry were riding together when they spotted a 2007 Toyota Tundra pickup eastbound on I-40 near the Custer City Road exit east of Clinton. Sheriff Bruce Peoples said the pickup was weaving on the roadway so they stopped it at 11:47 p.m. for an improper lane change.
