An 18-year-old and a 19-year-old from California driving 109 mph on Interstate 5 in Lane County were caught with nearly five pounds of heroin and methamphetamine, according to Oregon State Police.

An Oregon State Police sergeant stopped a speeding 2008 Lexus heading northbound near Goshen at 5 p.m. Monday.

During the stop, police said the sergeant received consent to search the vehicle. With the assistance of an Oregon State Police drug detection K-9, troopers said they discovered 2.7 pounds of heroin and 2 pounds of crystal meth.

The drugs were in a manufactured hidden compartment inside the vehicle, according to investigators.

The driver, identified as Charles Hallmark, 18, and his passenger, Angel Guzman, 19, both of Riverside California, were arrested and will be facing a future court appearance for unlawful possession of heroin and methamphetamine.

Hallmark was also cited for speeding.

No other details were released about the investigation by police.
