Woman With 4-Pound Bag Of Meth Arrested At San Onofre Checkpoint

SAN CLEMENTE (AP) — A drug-sniffing dog has found a four-pound bag of methamphetamine hidden in the jacket of a woman during a Southern California Border Patrol checkpoint stop on Interstate 5.

The 50-year-old woman, a U.S. citizen, was aboard a shuttle van stopped Monday at the highway checkpoint in San Onofre, which is just south of San Clemente in northern San Diego County. She was turned over to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

The Department of Homeland Security tells the Los Angeles Times that the $70,000 worth of methamphetamine was wrapped in cellophane and duct tape.

    No Que No were getting a little sensitve there sunshine. It state’s she is a U.S Citizen maybe she is of Mexican decent… regardless Miz Giz got it right remove, revoke her citizenship and let her live it up in Mexico.cause the tax payer still has to support the old Tweeker while she is Incarcerated.

    1. American VET says:

      I agree Jose you and Miz Giz got it absolutely right,for that matter let her spend a little time behind bars in Mexico. The jails and prisons there are much worse than anything we have here.
