State Police find $2 million in meth, fentanyl in traffic stop

CLAYTON, Ind. (ADAMS) – It was ‘unusual lane movement’ that led the Indiana State Police to a haul of drugs worth $2 million dollars.

Troopers say they pulled over a couple from California because of ‘unusual lane movement’ on I-70 near Clayton Monday afternoon.

That’s when troopers say they found 134 pounds of meth and 90 pounds of fentanyl. Investigators say the drugs were headed to Indianapolis. The two suspects are in jail and looking at drug trafficking charges.

Indiana State Police released the following:

This (Monday) afternoon at approximately 1:30 p.m., an Indiana State Police Trooper stopped a Chrysler van on Interstate 70 near the fifty-nine-mile marker for unsafe lane movement. The driver was identified as Ester Osegueda, age 32 of Porteville, California. The passenger in the vehicle was identified as Adam Lopez, age 27, of Tulare, California. During the conversation with the two occupants, the trooper observed criminal indicators and a subsequent investigation led to a search of the vehicle. During that search, the trooper discovered 134 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and 90 pounds of fentanyl concealed in the cargo area. The drugs originated from Memphis, Tennessee, and were destined for Indianapolis, Indiana. The estimated value of the narcotics is two million dollars.

Both subjects were taken into custody and transported to the Hendricks County Jail where they are currently being detained.
