A traffic stop led to a massive methamphetamine bust in Clackamas County.

An Oregon State Police trooper assigned to the Clackamas County Interagency Task Force pulled over a Ford Focus for a traffic infraction just off Interstate 5 at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

During the stop, the trooper's cover officer, a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office K-9, alerted on drugs in the car.

Further investigation led to the discovery of 21 pounds of meth. Deputies said the street value of the drugs is estimated at $550,000.

The driver, Omar Rodriguez, 32, of Canby, was arrested on charges of unlawful distribution and possession of methamphetamine.

The seizure marked the biggest meth bust in the history of the Clackamas County Interagency Task Force.
