Comments Off on 24 pounds of meth found inside an abandoned car in far East El Paso

Sheriff’s deputies found 24 pounds of methamphetamine inside an abandoned car in far East El Paso on Wednesday.

The drugs were found about 4 p.m. in the 13800 block of Montana Avenue, east of Zaragoza Road.

El Paso County sheriff’s officials said deputies were driving east on Montana when they saw a blue Lincoln Town Car parked partly on the right shoulder and stopped to investigate. After deputies tried to locate the owner, a drug-sniffing dog was used to search the car. Deputies found the meth in a secret compartment.

Deputies said the drugs have a street value of more than $300,000. Investigators are still working on the case and trying to find the car’s owner.
