Two Illinois residents ended up in the Hill County Law Enforcement Center Sunday morning, September 2, after a large amount of liquid methamphetamine was found in their van.
A traffic stop was conducted on Interstate 35 about 9:30 a.m. in northeast Hillsboro.
Department of Public Safety Trooper Teddy Brock discovered three 10-gallon containers in the van.
The men told the trooper they were filled with approximately 22-gallons of tequila.
Further testing of the contents revealed that it was methamphetamine.
The pair was reportedly en route to Illinois from Mexico when the stop was made.
A DPS spokesman estimated that the jugs contained 100 pounds of the drug.
Charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance were 43-year-old Patino Leopoldo and 32-year-old Alfonso Reyes.
Bond for both men was set at $50,000 by Justice of the Peace John Milburn.
Assisting on the stop were Trooper Donald Mills and Hillsboro police.
