EDMOND, Okla. (AP) – Four people have been arrested after deputies found about 120 grams of methamphetamine in their possession during a routine traffic stop in Edmond.

According to a police report, a deputy pulled over a vehicle early Sunday after it changed lanes without using a signal. The report says that as the vehicle came to a stop, the deputy saw a baseball-sized white bag thrown from the passenger side of the car.

Authorities say the plastic bag was located and that it contained about 117 grams of a crystal-like substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. Police say a search of one of the car’s passengers resulted in the discovery of about 4.3 grams of methamphetamine.

All four occupants of the car were arrested on several charges including trafficking illegal drugs.
