hernandez meth

methThree Mesa, Airzona residents were arrested on alleged drug trafficking complaints. The three, Bilma Herandez, 28, Edgar Hernandez, 26 and Jovana Hernandez, 18, were stopped by an Okmulgee County Sheriff's deputy Monday on Interstate 40 near Henryetta.
As a result of the stop, the deputy found about 10.5 pounds of methamphetamine concealed in the vehicle. The meth was wrapped in eight black plastic bags.
Sheriff's deputies estimated the illicit narcotics have a street value of nearly a quarter of a million dollars. It is believed the drugs came from Mexico and were smuggled across the border into the United States. Authorities said meth from Mexico is generally cheaper to import and is a higher quality than thoat produced in home labs in the United States.
All three are being held in the Okmulgee County jail for allegedly trafficking 200 grams or more of amphetamine or meth. No bond has been set.
