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.

      No, you mean "hope SHE rots in jail." He had nothing to do with anything but being in the car with no knowledge of her plans.

    If you not man/women enough to give your name when you comment on something you should just keep your comments to yourself. Because there is not much to you to start with.

      Now we know the rules of how Jesse (if that is your real name) would like message boards to operate. How about when you start your own message board, you set it up to operate the way you want it to, but in the meantime let WCTV operate theirs as they see fit.
