Plano woman arrested for felony marijuana possession
A Plano woman was arrested Tuesday evening in Amarillo after a trooper from the Texas Highway Patrol found 100 pounds of marijuana in her vehicle.
Marizol Ramirez, 34, was driving a 2007 Mitsubishi pickup when she was pulled over on I-40 near Wildorado, department spokesman Juan Medrano said. During the traffic stop, the trooper conducted a search of the vehicle and discovered the drugs. Sixty-one vacuum-sealed bundles of marijuana were concealed in two television sets and a cardboard box inside, which were located inside a trailer being towed by the pickup.
Ramirez was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana, a second-degree felony, and booked into the Oldham County Jail. The drugs were allegedly being transported from Fresno, Calif. to Dallas.
