LEWISVILLE, TX — The Lewisville Police Department says they seized more than 270 kilograms of meth in the largest drug bust in the department's history.

The responding officer deployed his K-9 partner Stryker to conduct a free air sniff of the tractor trailer and the K-9 alerted to the presence of narcotics.

Officer Robey assisted in the search, and officers located the methamphetamine in a hidden compartment.

The estimated street value of the seized narcotics is more than $1.2 million.
