Authorities say two women aboard a commercial shuttle van in Arizona have been arrested

after Border Patrol agents found methamphetamine hidden in two buckets of chicken.

 

Border Patrol says the agents discovered the drugs Thursday during a stop at an Interstate 19 checkpoint near Nogales.

 

Authorities say the drugs weighed about six pounds and were valued at more than $58,000.

 

The suspects have been held pending federal prosecution, and the methamphetamine has been turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

The identities of the suspects were not immediately released.

One of the things you learn from years of dealing with whiskey people, is that you can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on whiskey. Especially when it's waving a razor-sharp hunting knife in your eye.
