According to Lt. Hernandez, "Corporal Clark conducted a vehicle stop on the vehicle for being in violation of unsafe driving and failure to signal before turning. Corporal Clark contacted the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle. During Corporal Clark's contact and investigation, he located approximately 40lbs of packaged methamphetamine in several boxes and large Ziplock bags inside the vehicle."
