PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's the purest form of crystal meth amphetamine, and Pearl police just discovered a load of it during a traffic stop.

Police pulled over a truck through probable cause on I-20 Eastbound at Highway 49.

Officers found that the Blue Dodge Ram had been reported stolen.

Inside the truck, in a 'non-factory compartment' officers say they found 16 pounds of the drug, Ice.

The estimated street value of the drugs is a quarter of a million dollars.

The Pearl Police Department would like to thank MBN-HIDTA Group and the Hinds County Sheriff's Department for their assistance in this incident.

Lt. John Johnson said," this is another classic example of state and local agencies working together to fight the distribution of illegal drugs."
