A husband and wife were arrested for possession of a trafficking amount of methamphetamine.

Authorities found the drugs after a traffic stop in north Venice on May 5.
Detectives learned that Randy Green had allegedly picked up the drugs from his supplier in Port Charlotte, then had his wife drive him to make a drug deal that took place at a gas station on Knights Trail Road. Deputies recovered 54.4 grams of methamphetamine.
