CARSON COUNTY, Texas (KFDA) - Federal prosecutors filed a drug possession charge Tuesday against a woman they say was driving a car holding about $135,000 worth of meth.

A DPS traffic stop in Carson County on I- 40 Monday resulted in a search that revealed the drugs.

The driver told troopers a search K-9 would probably find marijuana, but it found the meth instead.

The complaint says Mercedes Harris-Karto told DPS that was her first trip from New Jersey to California with drugs.
