Two Corpus Christi, Texas, residents who were caught trying to conceal over 5,000 grams of methamphetamine with cookies during a traffic stop could face up to life behind bars after pleading guilty to distribution intent.
Talley was detained during the traffic stop and told to sit in the grass.
As police looked inside the vehicle, they spotted a bag suspected of containing meth in the area Talley was sitting.
Law enforcement officials also discovered a cardboard box behind the passenger seat. Inside the box, Hamdani’s press release said, contained a layer of cookies and another layer of five large plastic containers containing a substance.
Police also found two plastic bags containing some type of substance and a Sig Sauer firearm in a purse.
The investigation found the handgun was reported stolen out of Corpus Christi, and the substance in the containers was tested and confirmed to be 5,806 grams of meth with a 94% purity level.
Talley and Samora are scheduled to be sentenced in November by U.S. District Judge David S. Morales.
The two offenders could be sentenced to prison for the rest of their lives and fined up to $10 million.
Both Talley and Samora will remain in custody until sentencing, the release said.
