Two people traveling from Houston were arrested on drug charges by Nacogdoches Police officers late Monday night.

The arrest began with a traffic violation. According to Lt. Dan Taravella, NPD K9 Officers stopped a northbound Jeep Cherokee for speeding.

During NPD's investigation, the officers found that Kedar Muhammed, 27, of Park Forest, IL and Latifah Tate, 25, of Atlanta, GA had 50 lbs of liquid codeine. 

Muhammed and Tate were both arrested for a first degree felony of manufacture with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

The mugshots for Muhammed and Tate are not yet available -- as they're still being processed by Nacogdoches County law enforcement.
