Drug Packages Found On Christmas Eve

19 pounds of crystal meth seized on Christmas Eve. A Douglas County Sheriff’s K-9 drug interdiction deputy discovered the $500,000 worth of “Ice” in a hidden compartment.

The driver of a pick up with Colorado plates had been stopped for speeding and following too close.

Chief Deputy Marty Bilek said, “That’s a significant amount of narcotics to get off the street.”

The bagged meth was found stuffed in a hidden storage area in the drive train of the pickup. The door to the hidden compartment is located under the center console. Bilek said, “It’s rather sophisticated because it was electronically controlled. You can remotely operate the hidden compartment and access it with an electronic connection somewhere else in the vehicle.”

The interdiction deputies are trained to look for parts of a vehicle that look out of place or altered. In this case the center console didn’t fit correctly.
