MCLENNAN COUNTY, Texas — McLennan County authorities conducted a search on Tuesday, seizing approximately 865 grams of methamphetamine that is now off the streets of the Waco area.

According to the sheriff's office, authorities conducted a directed enforcement operation targeting two suspects in the McLennan County area.

Assisted by a McLennan County K9 Deputy, they stopped the suspect and a co-conspirator, where large quantity of methamphetamine was found packaged for distribution in a vehicle.

Occupants of the vehicle Scot Alan Formby of Anahuac, and Amala Catalina Camargo of Waco, were both arrested for the manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 over 400 grams — a first-degree felony.

A search warrant at a Waco residence was conducted, which led to evidence related to distribution of the methamphetamine.

A statement was made by Sheriff Parnell McNamara that reads:

"The seized methamphetamine could have supplied a user-level dose to approximately 1,500 users of the illegal drug, as a conservative estimate. Very proud of all the Law Enforcement Agencies working together to make this case."
