DALLAS — Dallas police arrested a man and woman on drug charges Sunday after a traffic stop in Pleasant Grove turned up methamphetamine.

Blake Long, 26, and Megan Archer, 25, were pulled over around 3:30 p.m. in the 6000 block of Hollis Avenue for not having a front license plate, police reports said.

Officers searched Long's 2000 gold Saturn after finding a baggie containing what appeared to be meth in the front pocket of his pants, according to a police report.

"These aren't my pants," he told police, records show.

Officers also found three large baggies of meth in a Manzanita Sol bottle, along with multiple empty baggies and a scale.

Long and Archer were charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and were being held in the Dallas County Jail. Long's bail was set at $100,000, while Archer's is pending.
