Man arrested, 86 pounds of meth recovered on I-15 traffic stop
A Pennsylvania man is being held in the Iron County jail without bail after he was caught with a massive amount of meth.
A Utah Highway Patrol trooper made the discovery this week during a traffic stop on Interstate 15.
During a search of the man's car, the trooper found a hidden compartment behind the back seat that reportedly contained 47 packages of meth weighing nearly 86-pounds.
Troopers say the man admitted he was paid five-thousand dollars to transport the drugs, and was given a gun for protection.
