NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches County deputies arrested two men Wednesday night accused of traveling with a large amount of meth on Loop 224.

Donald Wayne Lee, 30, and Thomas Justin Brown, 29, both of Center, are charged with second-degree possession of controlled substance.

According to Sheriff Jason Bridges, deputies stopped a gray Ford pickup for speeding at the intersection of Loop 224 and FM 1275 around 9 p.m.

Bridges said Lee and Brown were very nervous and gave conflicting statements about why they were in the county. The suspects gave consent to search the pickup and deputies reported finding 10 grams of crystal meth inside a black plastic container in the floorboard in the front of the pickup.
