Posted: Updated:

The Williamson County Sheriff's Department landed a big drug bust during a routine traffic stop.

According to the Sheriff's Office, a 2006 Chevy Tahoe was stopped for having a defective center brake light and speeding on I-35.

Heriberto and Hilda Madrid as well as their 1-year-old son were in the car.

Deputies say Heriberto and his wife were acting very nervous. Eventually Heriberto admitted that there were drugs in the vehicle.

After getting consent to search the vehicle, the deputy removed two duffle bags from the back seat. One had 30 bundles of crystal meth, weighing about 91 pounds and the second contained a large brick of marijuana that weighed about 28 pounds.

The street value of the crystal meth is about $1 million and the marijuana is about $20,000.

Herberto Madrid was taken into custody.
