Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputies recently found about 3 pounds of methamphetamine worth $60,000 to $70,000 after a traffic stop, an official said Wednesday.

“That’s a terrific seizure,” sheriff’s Lt. David Mattingly said.

Mattingly gave this account: About 3:17 a.m. Saturday deputies stopped a 2013 GMC SUV for a traffic violation in the 19900 block of West U.S. 54 and found two packages holding meth. The driver was a 32-year-old Arizona woman heading east on her way through the area. She was booked into jail for possession with intent to sell meth.
