HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Hinds County authorities seized 13 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of $500,000 during a traffic stop.

Sheriff Tyrone Lewis says deputies stopped a vehicle on Interstate 20. The drugs were reportedly hidden inside the console of a 2010 Honda Accord.

Two people were arrested. Daniel Bueno, 36, and Misty Barker, 19, are charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

Lewis said the vehicle was headed out of town, but some of the meth was meant to stay in Mississippi.

"It's been a known fact that distributing drugs as well as using drugs creates a violent atmosphere. We think we are enhancing our community by eliminating these types of drugs from getting on our streets," Lewis said.
