    An Oklahoma City man has been arrested after a Texas Panhandle traffic stop yielded $1 million in methamphetamine.

    Carson County jail records show 20-year-old Ernesto Ayala was being held Monday on a charge of felony possession of a controlled substance.

    The Texas Department of Public Safety says one of its troopers stopped Ayala on Saturday for a traffic violation near Conway, about 20 miles east of Amarillo.

    The trooper discovered several plastic-wrapped packages of methamphetamine weighing more than 12 pounds concealed inside the panels of Ayala's car.
