Wake Co. deputies find 47 bottles of meth during traffic stop
RALEIGH, N.C. — The Wake County Sheriff’s Office says a man’s tinted windows led them to more than $10 million worth of methamphetamine.
According to WTVD, Russell Stanley Lagos Carmona, 20, and his passenger Brayn Sanchez Acosta are facing several drug trafficking charges.
Deputies stopped the vehicle on U.S. 264 East in Nightdale Monday around 5 p.m. for a window tint violation.
But inside the Dodge Charger Carmona was driving, they found 47 one-liter soda bottles filled with liquid methamphetamine.
Deputies say the bottles of the illegal – and highly addictive – drug were in the car’s back seat. They have an estimated street value of $10 million.
