SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - One Arizona woman was arrested near Shasta Lake on Oct. 11 after authorities say she had nearly six pounds of heroin inside her car.
Officials say Shasta County Sheriff's Deputies conducted a traffic stop just before noon on I-5 where they met the driver, Ramona Lopez of Phoenix.
K-9 "Thor" was with the deputies and they say he displayed a "positive alert", indicating there was an odor of a controlled substance.
After a search of the vehicle, deputies say they found 5.8 pounds of heroin on the back passenger seat.
Lopez was booked into the Shasta County Jail for possession of heroin for the purpose of sales.
