OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Federal prosecutors in Oklahoma have filed drug charges against two people accused of transporting 1,262 pounds of liquid methamphetamine in the fuel tank of a tractor-trailer truck.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Oklahoma City said Friday 36-year-old Enrique Lara of Chicago and 21-year-old Jasmine Morales of McAllen, Texas, are charged with possession with intent to distribute liquid methamphetamine.
Prosecutors say about 150 gallons of meth was found in the passenger-side fuel tank of a diesel-powered semi-truck parked at a Norman motel on Monday. A court affidavit estimates the street value of the drug at between $750,000 and $3.15 million.
If convicted, Lara and Morales face possible sentences of up to life in prison. Court records do not indicate that they are represented by an attorney who could speak on their behalf.
