WACO, Texas (KWTX) – The Waco, Texas Anti-Gang unit seized more than 80 pounds of methamphetamine from a trailer outside a home after executing a search warrant at around 2 p.m. Wednesday in the 1100 block of Proctor Avenue.
Three people were arrested, Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Ryan Howard said Thursday.
Their names weren’t immediately released.

As a result of the investigation, officers pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 35 north of Waco and seized another three pounds of methamphetamine and recovered a stolen firearm.
