Officer finds 30Ibs of Xanax worth half a million


FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A traffic stop led to a drug bust of 30 pounds of illegal Alprazolam (Generic Xanax) with a street value between $516,000 to $645,000 on the western edge of Houston this week.

A Fulshear City police officer pulled over two men after they ran a stop sign within the Cross Creek Ranch Master Planned community near Campbell Elementary School.

During the encounter with the suspects, probable cause was determined and the officer called for back-up so he could safely search the car.

Both men were arrested without and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver in a Drug Free Zone (due to the proximity of the school.)

Police said both men live in unincorporated Harris County.

The case still active, thus police wouldn’t provide anymore details.
