Lowndes County, Georgia - January 12, 2012

On January 12 at approximately 4:00 am the Lowndes County 9-1-1 center received a citizen call regarding a vehicle traveling south and driving erratically on Interstate 75. A look out was given to deputies and shortly thereafter Deputy Brett Williams located and stopped the vehicle near the fourteen {14} mile marker. The driver of the vehicle, Sandra Anguiano-Torres, was unable to provide a driver license or any type of identification. During the stop it was also learned that the vehicle was uninsured and the registration had been suspended. Due to the lack of a valid driver license, the vehicle having no insurance and the suspended registration, Sandra Anguiano-Torres was placed under arrest and a wrecker called for the vehicle. During an inventory of the vehicle, Deputy Williams and Sergeant Chip Schroer, who had responded to assist, located a plastic bag containing approximately one {1} pound of methamphetamine. The methamphetamine has an estimated value of $42,318.00.

Sandra Anguiano-Torres and a passenger, Carlos Medina, were both arrested and transported to the Lowndes County Jail. A one {1} year child, that was in the vehicle with the couple, was taken by deputies to the Sheriff’s Office while awaiting the arrival of a family member.
