Brazos County Sheriff's deputies seized a pound of methamphetamine after pulling a woman over for speeding late Wednesday night on State Highway 6.

The deputy was watching drivers on Highway 6 at around 11 p.m. Wednesday when he pulled 45-year-old Tina Contreras over.

After asking Contreras and her passenger to get out of the car, deputies found a suspicious plastic bag by the driver's seat.

Inside they found a quart bag filled with crystal methamphetamine, weighing just more than a pound.

They also recovered almost $1,000 in cash.

Contreras was arrested and charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

She remained in the Brazos County Jail Thursday.
