ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma - Rogers County deputies found over eight pounds of methamphetamine after stopping a car on the Will Rogers Turnpike.

They arrested two people, Walter Rawls and Chanele Pauley. Both are Arizona residents and were booked into the Rogers County Jail early Tuesday morning, records show.

Authorities say Deputy Scotty Moree stopped a car on an eastbound on-ramp to the turnpike and became suspicious that the vehicle might be transporting drugs. Moree's K-9 partner alerted on the vehicle, officials say.

Deputies eventually found 8.5 pounds of crystal methamphetamine. Rawls, 43, and Pauley, 33, were booked on complaints of trafficking in illegal drugs.
