ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. – Authorities say a traffic stop led to the discovery of eight pounds of drugs this week.
The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office reported that around 10:30 p.m. Monday night, deputies pulled over a vehicle near the Will Rogers Turnpike.
Deputies say the couple, Chanele Benita Pauley and Walter Gray Rawls, in the vehicle were from Arizona.
Official documents show the deputy was given different stories when he inquired as to where the couple was going. The deputy said he noticed Chanele was shaking and "then started farting in my vehicle. All these signs led me to believe Chanele was extremely nervous."
A drug dog was brought to sniff the vehicle and alerted the deputy to the trunk of the car.
The deputy wrote that he found four boxes in the trunk that were wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper. A trash bag was found that contained plastic covering for wrapping paper, tape, napkins and blue rubber gloves. When the four boxes were opened the deputy found around eight pounds of methamphetamine valued at more than $750,000.
