Everybody should follow traffic laws, but those carrying illicit substances should definitely remember to signal when changing lanes and stay under the speed limit.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, that was a lesson lost on Oklahoma City resident Ernesto Ayala, who was pulled over for a traffic violation Sept. 3 near Conway, about 20 miles from Amarillo, Texas.

Ayala was heading east on Interstate 40 toward Oklahoma when a trooper stopped his car.

Members of the Texas Highway Patrol said they found about 12 pounds of methamphetamines — a street value of about $1 million — wrapped in plastic inside the panels of the 2003 Nissan.

Ayala was taken to Carson County Jail on complaints of felony possession of a controlled substance but has since bonded out.

The drugs were allegedly being brought to Oklahoma City from San Diego, California.
