Washington pair nabbed on I-5 with meth cache
A routine traffic stop on Interstate 5 led troopers to a six-pound stash of methamphetamine and cash Thursday morning.
The driver, Victorino Santos-Andres, 18, of Lacey, Wash., could not produce identification, prompting Watson to take him into custody.
"Enough probable cause was then established to lead us to search the vehicle," Watson said.
Officials from Immigration and Naturalization Services determined that both men are illegal aliens.
Read that again. If the driver had been able to produce identification, such as an Oregon drivers license, he would probably have been cited for whatever the "routine" traffic stop (tailight, etc) was for.
It was only because he did not have a drivers license that the police were able to search his vehicle.
Who knows how many drugs have not been intercepted because Oregon does give licenses to these criminal aliens. It is pure hypocrisy to claim to be fighting a "war on meth" while at the same time arming the enemy with the tools they need to continue in their criminal trade.
