CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities in Carson City say an improper lane change provided the opportunity they needed to pull over a suspect in an ongoing drug investigation.

They say they found more than 2 pounds of methamphetamine in the car after the Thursday night stop. Three people were arrested.

The Nevada Appeal reports the street value of the drugs is estimated at $67,000.

The Carson City sheriff's office says 57-year-old Steven Gillim was pulled over around 8 p.m.

Authorities say they also found 2.8 grams of heroin, a gun silencer, night-vision glasses, drug paraphernalia and about $3,600 cash.

Gillim was arrested on suspicion of multiple charges.

Also arrested were 41-year-old Eric Weber and 45-year-old Melinda Paetz.

The Appeal reports all three were jailed on $250,000 bail.
