Seward County Traffic Stop Leads to $200,000 Meth Bust

Judd Weil-News Director


A search of a vehicle by a Seward County Sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop led to the discovery and seizure of 30 pounds of meth on Friday, May 27.

Seward County Sheriff Gene Ward said the deputy pulled over a vehicle Friday around noon on U.S. Highway 54 near Liberal, Kan.

The deputy became suspicious the two people in the car were involved criminal activity.

Ward said a search of the vehicle found the meth, which has a street value of about $200,000.

The deputy arrested the two people.

The Seward County Sheriff’s Office is not releasing their names until the Seward County Attorney’s Office charges them, possibly Monday afternoon.

The Sheriff’s Office is also not releasing details about where the drugs were headed as the case is still under investigation.
