Meth bust is biggest in Sioux Falls history

Posted:

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ Authorities in Sioux Falls say a bust netted nearly 9 pounds of methamphetamine and more than $94,000 in cash.
 
    Police Chief Doug Barthel says it's the largest meth seizure in the city's history. Authorities were tipped off by employees at a hotel where a woman had apparently forgotten about a large amount of cash that had been left under a mattress in one of the rooms.
 
    About $87,000 was found in the room. The rest was found during searches of the woman's vehicle and home.
 
    The 42-year-old woman was arrested, along with two Sioux Falls men, ages 19 and 42.
