OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City couple was arrested in the Texas panhandle with half a million dollars of methamphetamine, investigators say.

Texas officials said Elda Torres Delfin and Diego Delfin-Esquivel were taking the drugs to Oklahoma City. As a direct result of the arrest in Texas, agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration in Oklahoma City searched the couple's home for more evidence.

Neighbors recorded cell phone video and took pictures of the DEA search near SW 97th and Western on Wednesday evening. Witnesses told News 9 they saw agents walking out of the home with black cases while other investigators searched the couple's vehicles.

The home belongs to 36-year-old Elda Torres Delfin. She and her husband, 27-year-old Diego Delfin-Esquivel, were arrested when DPS troopers in Texas pulled them over on I-40 near Amarillo for a traffic violation.

DPS said the two Oklahoma City residents had more than 14 pounds of meth valued at over $515,000 in the vehicle. The drugs were divided up into 12 bags.

The Delfins were arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance. The troopers said the drugs were being transported from Phoenix to Oklahoma City.

Neighbors tell us the couple has several young children who live with them at the home.

A spokesperson with the DEA office in Oklahoma City said the children are being cared for by a 19-year-old daughter.

The DEA said the search on the home lead to additional warrants being issued at other addresses, however no drugs were found at the Delfin's home.
