A couple of detectives with the Aransas County Sheriff's Office made a major methamphetamine bust Thursday night in Rockport.
The bust happened in the parking lot of the Valero station at Market Street by the bypass. After conducting surveillance, the detectives noticed some suspicious behavior, which led the detectives to a find of some 16 grams of crystal meth and nearly $2,000 in cash.
The detectives said meth dealers are usually very elusive, and the bust was bigger than a normal bust, so they are very lucky to have made such a sizeable seizure.
"For the most part, you know, a lot of times you'll get the little baggies," detectives said. "You'll get the little $20 baggies, little $40 baggies; but to have this much meth, you know, at one time, it's pretty satisfying. Especially when it's from a traffic stop."
Because of the nature of their work, the detectives asked to be kept anonymous.
As for the two people who were arrested, 42-year old Elizabeth Nina Merson and 44-year old Ronald Lloyd Dreier, they are charged with manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance.
