Liquid meth seized in traffic stop
BATON ROUGE - Authorities said they busted a Texas woman for bringing a large amount of liquid meth through Baton Rouge this week.
Members of the Baton Rouge Police Highway Interdiction Task Force accused Vanessa Hernandez, 34, of Houston with drug possession after the bust Monday.
A Baton Rouge Police spokesperson said officers stopped a passenger bus just after midnight Monday on I-12 between Airline Highway and Sherwood Forest Boulevard. During the stop police said a K9 found a suitcase in the luggage compartment which had 36 bottles of liquid meth hidden inside it.
Investigators said the meth had a street value of $700,000. They said it was believed to be one of the biggest meth busts ever undertaken in the U. S.
Investigators booked Hernandez into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
