Police found a Cubs duffel bag filled with baseball equipment and drugs. Jesus Camargo-Corrales is charged with possession of 21 pounds of methamphetamine (Eagle County Sheriff's Office via AP).

Police in Eagle County, Colorado, say they pulled over a man driving a BMW on Wednesday before finding 21 pounds of suspected methamphetamine and 1.2 pounds of suspected oxycodone in his car.

The suspect is Chicago Cubs minor leaguer Jesus Camargo-Corrales, according to 9 News in Denver.

According to the Eagle County Sheriff's Office, Camargo-Corrales' BMW was speeding and swerving between lanes, prompting the traffic stop. When they pulled him over, deputy Evan Jaramillo said he asked Camargo-Corrales if there were any drugs in the car.

Police: K-9 alerted deputies to drugs

Camargo-Corrales told him "no" and that he follows a strict anti-doping policy because he plays in the Cubs system, according to the report. Camargo-Corrales and his two passengers gave deputies permission to search the car, and a K-9 dog named Zane signaled officers to search under the rear seat, according to ECSO.

Deputies found a Cubs duffel bag filled with cleats, baseball gloves and several packages of a white substance believed to be methamphetamine, according to deputies. They also found $1,000 in cash in addition to the suspected oxycodone pills, per the report.

Camargo-Corrales facing multiple felony charges

Camargo-Corrales is charged with four felonies: Distribution and possession of methamphetamine, distribution of oxycodone and possession of schedule 2 drugs, according to the report. He's being held on $75,000 bond in an Eagle County jail.

Deputies released the two passengers after determining that they weren't aware of the drugs, per the report.

The Cubs released a statement acknowledging that they're aware of the arrest.

“We are aware of the arrest of one our Minor League players,” spokeswoman Julian Green said, per the statement. “We are investigating this matter and cannot provide additional comment until we have further details.”

Camargo-Corrales, 25, first signed a minor league contract with the Cubs in 2014. According to MLB.com, he was assigned to the High-A South Bend Cubs in February.

The suspect is from Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico.

  8. He was a shitty pitcher, stuck in Rookie ball and Low-A, not many innings worked. After 5 years even a basic 3-pitch guy should working Triple A. Hell, he wasn't very good at moving the ol' metapetamina, either!
