HOBBS, N.M. - A Hobbs couple remains behind bars for trafficking methamphetamine.

42-year-old Eliah Rodriguez and Yvonne Zaragosa are facing felony charges of conspiracy and trafficking a controlled substance.

They were arrested Wednesday night around 8:45 p.m. after authorities searched a home in the 800 block of Llano.

That's where they found about three pounds of meth, numerous plastic bags and a set of digital scales.

When he was questioned, Rodriguez eventually admitted to selling the drug and even told authorities the identity of his supplier.
