TROY, AL (WSFA) -

A traffic stop led to the discovery of more than two pounds of methamphetamine and the arrest of a Dale County man in Troy Monday.

In a joint operation with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Troy police officers stopped Claen Odell Chacon, 23, at about 5 p.m. on Highway 231, according to Troy Police Chief Jimmy Ennis.

After a K-9 unit alerted to the presence of narcotics, investigators found 2.2 pounds of meth in the vehicle, according to police.

Chacon, of Newton, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

He was transported to Montgomery by Drug Enforcement Administration agents. He's being held on no bond until a detention hearing is set in federal court for the middle district of Alabama.
