More Than $50,000 in Drugs Taken Off Lubbock Streets

A routine traffic stop turns into more than a $50,000 drug bust.

Courtney Lamar Rogers, 23, is behind bars and faces a $60,000 bond. He is charged with possession of a controlled substance and felony possession of a firearm.

This comes after Lubbock County Sheriff Deputies pulled him over at East 19th and Birch Avenue around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night. "During that traffic stop there was an interdiction that took place concerning what ultimately was with dope and a gun," Major Don Carter, Lubbock County Sheriff's Office. 

Deputies used a K-9 to search the car and recovered crack cocaine. Shortly after, deputies searched his home in the 2600 block of 43rd Street. In total, officers recovered more than 5 ounces of crack cocaine, around $9,000 and a 45-caliber handgun.

Taylor Jade Lopez, 19, also lives at the home searched. She is charged with possession of a controlled substance and was jailed on a $25,000 bond. She has since made bail.

At this time, the case is still under investigation.
