Meth and Heroin Traffickers Caught in Meridian
You don't usually associate Meridian with drugs. I like to remind myself that Meridian was once voted the "Best City in America" to live in. Luckily, we got these bad guys off the streets!
It happened in a Meridian parking lot Tuesday night. 33-year-old Heather Marie Ray and 34-year-old Baldemar Arteaga have been arrested at the intersection of Overland and Meridian Road. (I pass this area all the time and never thought of it as a spot for a drug deal to go down!)
According to KTVB, Ray and Arteaga possessed more than 28 grams of heroin and more than 400 grams of meth.
The pair is currently sitting in the Canyon County Jail, each being held on a $500,000 bond.
If convicted they face up to life in prison with a minimum mandatory sentence of ten years.
So sad to see lives throw away by drugs. Big thanks to law enforcement involved who are trying to keep our streets safe.
