Three people were arrested Wednesday after police said they tried to transport methamphetamines into Clovis.

Aleasha Shober, 29, Charles Landon Bannister, 27, both of Clovis, were arrested in Texico after agents with the Region V Drug Task Force stopped the vehicle they were driving, said a press release from the Curry County Sheriff.

The release said the stop was conducted based on information indicating the pair were returning from a trip to Lubbock to pick up methamphetamine and bring it back to Clovis.

Officers said they found approximately two grams of meth in the vehicle and Shober told them they had purchased more but consumed it before returning to Clovis.

Agents later served a search warrant at a residence in the 1100 block of Ross Street shared by Michelle and Aleasha Shober of Clovis.

Officers said Michelle Shober, 26, was also charged after agents found additional meth, packaging and paraphernalia in the residence.

Bannister, arrested on outstanding warrants for distribution of marijuana and contempt of court, is charged with trafficking meth and tampering with evidence.

Michelle Shober is charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia and Aleasha Shober is charged with possession of meth, tampering with evidence and harboring a felon.
