Agents arrested two men Sunday after stopping their 18-wheeler and finding it filled with crystal meth.
Pablo Lopez, 39, and Luis Alberto Lopez, 25, were the two men agents with West Tennessee Violent Crime & Drug Task Force said drove the 18-wheeler into Shelby County.
Agents initially pulled the truck because it was speeding, but when a drug detection dog found 31.5 pounds of crystal meth amphetamine inside the trailer, they realized the stop was more serious.
The meth was found hidden among produce that was to be delivered to Indianola, Mississippi.
The drugs had an estimated street value of more than $700,000.
Both men were charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver.
