Undercover police intercept methamphetamine

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ Lawton police officers intercepted a large quantity of methamphetamine on Friday.

The department's undercover drug task force team waited for a car with a suspected drug load after they were tipped off about a car that was headed into town from Oklahoma City.

 Once in the Lawton area, officers say the suspects realized they were being tailed by undercover police and led them on a chase.

The chase ended after several minutes near the intersection of NW Crestwood Drive and 73rd Street. A man and woman in the car were both arrested.

Police recovered a quarter-pound of methamphetamine inside the car, and believe the suspects tossed something out of the car's window during the chase.
