The Lewisville Police Department seized about 595 pounds of methamphetamine over the weekend in one of the largest drug busts in the department’s history.

An anonymous caller tipped police about a suspicious tractor-trailer near a major highway at 3 p.m. on Sunday. K-9 Officer Pat Robey deployed his K-9 partner, Stryker, to conduct a free air sniff of the truck, and Stryker alerted to the presence of narcotics, according to a news release from the Lewisville Police Department.

Police then conducted a search at the department’s headquarters and located the methamphetamine in a hidden compartment. The estimated street value of the seized narcotics is more than $1.2 million.
