Routine Traffic Stop Becomes Drug Bust

A Lubbock officer trying to question a driver about expired tags ended up making a drug bust overnight.

The incident began in the parking lot of the Town & Country at 50th and Avenue A. As an officer approached a Cadillac, the driver took off. A chase began, but ended shortly thereafter at 40th and MLK when the Cadillac slammed into a guardrail. Police say the suspect then threw out a large bag of marijuana as he ran away on foot, but was taken into custody a few blocks away.
