Federal and local drug investigators arrested a Washington man traveling on a commercial bus through Medford and seized a pound of crystal methamphetamine in his luggage.

The bus was headed north to Washington on Tuesday when U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations agents and the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team arrested Saul Temaj-Lopez, 28, of Aberdeen, Wash., officials said in a news release today.

Investigators had received a tip that a passenger was carrying drugs, the release said. Their investigation found about a pound of meth.
