748 grams of Xanax stashed in grill of car (KTRK)

Several baggies of pills were found stashed in the grill of a car during a traffic stop in Montgomery County this week.

In all, 748 grams of Xanax were seized from the front part of the vehicle during the stop on Tuesday.

A deputy became suspicious of the vehicle when a marijuana odor was detected. Authorities said the two people in the vehicle denied having anything illegal.

A K9 was needed to search for narcotics.

The pills were so deep inside the grill that the vehicle was confiscated to remove a plastic covering.

Two men - Mekal Williams and Devante Thomas, both 24 - were arrested and accused of trafficking a controlled substance.
