When Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Rosie Lopez made a routine traffic stop on March 8, 2012, for a driver not wearing his seatbelt, she had no idea she would encounter the second largest amount of methamphetamine she had ever seen. The bust and subsequent trial pits brother against brother, with neither claiming the drugs.

During opening arguments in the 266th Judicial District Court Tuesday, District Attorney Alan Nash said the case was simple with clear evidence pointing out that the defendant, David Longoria Gonzales, was in possession of the vehicle in which officers found the more than six ounces of crystal methamphetamine. He said Gonzales intentionally and knowingly possessed the drugs that were found in the vehicle.
