Comments Off on Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office: 30 pounds of Methamphetamine found in abandoned Phoenix car

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office retrieved about 30 pounds of methamphetamine in an abandoned vehicle in west Phoenix Friday, according to officials.

Deputies found the abandoned Chrysler PT Cruiser near 51st Avenue and Elwood Road on Friday, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said in a media alert.

According to the statement, a K-9 detected a drug scent from the vehicle, which prompted a search. Narcotics detectives seized a total of 22 vacuumed sealed bags of methamphetamine in a hidden trap door under the back seat of the car, the statement said.

Detectives say the large amount of methamphetamine has an approximate street valued of $215,000.

The investigation is ongoing. There were no other details immediately available.
