MASSIVE meth bust on I-20

Tuesday night, a typical traffic stop yielded 2-1/2 gallons of liquid methamphetamine, which would produce nearly 23 pounds of meth, worth $460,000. A Brandon police officer pulled over Jose Demesio De Leon Silva of Austin, Texas, and the Nuevo Larado area of Mexico. During the stop, the officer became suspicious, and after gaining consent to search the vehicle, was able to obtain the stash. PICTURED: the liquid methamphetamine hidden in plastic bottles.
