A Conyers woman was arrested last week after a routine traffic stop led to an arrest and discovery of more than two pounds of methamphetamine in her car.

A Rockdale County Sheriff's Office K9 and deputy patrolling the area near Farmer and Irwin Bridge Roads around 10 p.m. last Monday pulled Reina Yanet Licea, 27, of Fairview Road in Conyers, over. When she was asked if she knew why she had been stopped, she reportedly said for having her high beams on. 

According to the arrest report, she said she didn't have her license on her. A search of her name revealed her license was suspended. The deputy then searched Licea's Honda Accord and found in the trunk several packages of methamphetamine, weighing more than two pounds.

According to the report, the officer obtained a warrant to search Licea's home the day after her arrest and as a result of the search three men were arrested in the garage after three glass pipes commonly used to smoke methamphetamines were found near the men.

Hector Hugo Rutz-Vargas, 25, Ruben Rodriguez-Herrera, 29, both of Conyers, and Efren Valdez, 35, of Covington, were charged with possession of drug related objects.
