Oregon Drug Bust of the Week: Meth is Gross

Don't put two pounds of meth in your guitar case.

Super duper gross. Just look at it. Barf-o-rama.

Now, you probably thought we'd be writing about this drug bust, which led the discovery and seizure of more than 250 pounds of pot in southern Oregon. But yeah, that was pot.

Instead, I've got a story about a man from Pasco, Washington who was driving up I-5, minding his own business when he was pulled over. Actually, he wasn't really minding his own business...at all. Witnesses said the dude was swerving all over the place, nearly hitting another vehicle, thus cops thought they'd check him out.

During the stop, cops found two pounds of meth -- which is lot of meth -- in a guitar case in the trunk of the car. Miguel Valencia-Gutierrez, 25, of Pasco, Washington, was arrested and held on $1 million bail.
