The St. Clair County Sheriff's Office says a traffic stop led to the largest meth bust in the county's history last week. 

According to the sheriff's office, deputies stopped a vehicle on I-69 in Riley Township around 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 2. While talking with the driver, the deputy became suspicious about possible drug activity and requested a K9 unit.

The K9 alerted to drugs being in the vehicle and members of the Sheriff's Office's Drug Task Force were called in.

During a search of the vehicle, the task force found $125,000 worth of meth, plus marijuana and about $1,200 in cash.

The 38-year-old suspect from Port Huron was arrested and is expected to face several charges.
