Traffic stop turns into police finding over $68K worth of meth

ST. CLAIR, Pa. - A traffic stop in Schuylkill County turned into police finding one and a half pounds of methamphetamine. 

Officials say they executed a traffic stop on a Toyota Corolla Thursday within the borough of St. Clair. A probable cause led police to search the vehicle, in which items of contraband were seized. 

The pounds of methamphetamine seized had an estimated street value of over $68,000. 

Officials took two men into custody -- Efrain Rivera-Santiago, 19, and Michael Ramirez, 19, both of Reading. 

The two are charged with possession with the intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance and related charges. 

Bail was set for both at $75,000 and they were remanded to Schuylkill County Prison.
