OKLAHOMA CITY -

Over $60,000 in methamphetamine is off the streets after a traffic stop on the southwest side of the metro last week.

An Oklahoma County Sheriff's deputy made the stop last Thursday. According to the sheriff's office, the deputy noticed a pickup truck weaving in and out of its lane on I-240 before he initiated the traffic stop.

The deputy said the driver, 38-year-old Zully Penate, was acting nervous while he was speaking with her and she gave him permission to search the vehicle. K9 officer Cairo, who's no stranger to big time drug busts, was used to conduct an open-air sniff around the pickup where he eventually made a positive hit on the vehicle.
