Two Iowa residents have been arrested on drug charges and held on $1 million bond after a canine inspection of their pickup during a west suburban traffic stop found nearly 20 pounds of methamphetamine. 

The find is valued at about $1 million.

At about 12:25 p.m. Tuesday, a Naperville police K-9 officer conducted a routine traffic stop on a pickup in the area of North Aurora Road and Route 59, a release from Naperville police said.

The officer noted several suspicious indicators and had his K-9 partner Sabek check the exterior of the truck. The dog alerted to several exterior locations of the vehicle, indicating the presence of drugs.

After a more complete search, about 19 pounds of methamphetamine was found in the bed of the truck, police said.

Jesus Rubio, 25, and Edgardo Rodriguez-Sanchez, 20, both of Des Moines, Iowa, were charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

The estimated street value of the seized methamphetamine was $984,790, according to police.
