A Hialeah man was arrested early Friday after police seized 3 pounds of methamphetamine worth $25,000, which he said was for “filtering pools,” according to the Edgewater Police Department.

Guillermo Arteaga, 53, was being held on $25,000 bail at the Volusia County Branch Jail.

Arteaga was arrested after police stopped him for doing 80 mph in a 45-mph zone and discovered an arrest warrant out of Palm Beach County, according to reports.

When police conducted a vehicle inventory before Arteaga’s car was towed, they found a black bag in the trunk that contained smaller vacuum-sealed bags with large quantities of an “ice-like substance” that tested positive for meth, reports stated.
