YAVAPAI COUNTY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Five pounds of methamphetamine in a Pop Tart box were uncovered during a routine traffic stop last Wednesday. 

A Yavapai County Sheriff Office deputy stopped a green 2006 GMC on Interstate 17 near Highway 169 that was speeding and swerving over the fog line last Wednesday.

The occupants Eduardo Villalobos-Pizarro, 35, and his passenger Edger Rivera-Prieto, 39, exhibited unusual levels of nervousness when questioned.

Their stories also conflicted with one another.

The deputy's search of the vehicle revealed one pound of methamphetamine concealed in a black plastic bundle on the back floorboard and another 5 pounds of packaged methamphetamine found inside a Pop Tart box. 

Rivera and Villalobos were booked on charges including transportation-sale of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
