The Littlefield Police Department received report of a fully loaded cattle truck travelling westbound on U.S. Hwy 84 where the reporting party advised the truck was “all over the road from shoulder to shoulder.”

Littlefield officers stopped the truck at the western city limits and U.S. Hwy 84. The driver, Misael Flores, was operating the vehicle on a public roadway under the influence of illegal drugs and was arrested. 

A search of the truck found a quantity of illegal narcotics. A representative for the Lubbock Feed Lot took possession of the trailer and cattle.
