Authorities in the Texas Panhandle continue to make large value illegal drug seizures during traffic stops.

Monday (February 5, 2018), a Gray County Sheriff's deputy conducted a traffic stop on Alcock Street in Pampa. According to the Gray County Sheriff's Office, while interviewing the driver, the deputy found 2 oz of cocaine and $7,800 cash on his person. A subsequent search of the vehicle also turned up 47 lbs of marijuana packed in numerous plastic bags.

Tuesday afternoon, when KFYO News spoke to the Gray County Sheriff's Office a street value had not yet been determined for the illegal drugs.

47 year-old Hummingbird Takahashi was arrested at the scene and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver Greater than 4 Grams, and Less than 200 Grams; and Possession of Marijuana Greater than 5 lbs and Less than 50 lbs.

Back in 2012, a reported 41 year-old Takahashi was arrested in St. Johnsbury, Vermont for illegal possession of marijuana, cocaine and a firearm, according to the Caledonian Record. He pleaded no contest to the charges a year later.

Pampa is located 54 miles northeast of Amarillo and approximately 175 miles north of Lubbock.
