Mom Caught With $2 Million Worth Of Meth While Traveling With 4-Year-Old Daughter

The Texas mom is 23 years old.

A Texas woman was found with $2 million worth of crystal meth hidden in "Purple Power" jugs in her car. Seline Ayala, 23, was traveling with her 4-year-old daughter when the drugs were found, the Austin Statesman reports.

She was pulled over for speeding last week, and an Austin police officer became suspicious. That led to a K-9 search of her car, which revealed at least 75 pounds worth of liquid crystal meth inside the white jugs that originally contained cleaner/degreaser.

The suspect told police a variety of stories, claiming she had the drugs because she worked for a doctor, according to the Austin Statesman. But, eventually she admitted she was taking the drugs to Dallas. She said she would be paid for her delivery upon her return to Laredo, where she lives, according to KVUE.
