(Stillwater, Okla.) — A 38-year-old woman from Muskogee County has been jailed on $100,000 bail in connection with one of the largest methamphetamine seizures reported in Payne County.
The total weight of methamphetamine was approximately 19.8 pounds, with a street value of $177,000 or more, Stillwater Police Officer Brett Moore wrote in an affidavit.
If convicted of aggravated meth trafficking and possessing a loaded semi-automatic pistol while committing a drug crime, Holly Amanda Lynch of Warner could be given a life prison term plus 10 years. She has been ordered to appear in court on April 3.
In a jail interview on March 3, “Holly stated she picked up approximately 9 kilos from a Hispanic female in OKC. Holly advised she was delivering 1 pound to an individual in Stillwater. Holly stated she receives compensation in means of 1-2 pounds of methamphetamine for her to sell, for picking up and delivering the narcotics.
“Holly stated she makes approximately $2,000 a trip. Holly stated she does not know the male that directs her to the locations to pick the product up other than the fact he is in prison,” the affidavit alleged.
The drugs and loaded gun were found in Lynch’s car after a traffic stop on March 2 at 5600 S. Perkins Road after a K-9 indicated her vehicle should be searched, the affidavit alleged.
“I immediately located a large, gift style bag in the backseat,” that had a gallon size zip top bag containing about one pound of methamphetamine. Detective Carson located a semi-automatic pistol chamber and magazine loaded under the driver’s seat,” the officer alleged in his affidavit.
In the trunk a large amount of methamphetamine was found in a bag containing 9 vacuum sealed bags, each of which appeared to have a kilo or 2.2 pounds, the affidavit alleged.
“A large set of digital scales were located as well as numerous unused zip-top sandwich-sized plastic baggies,” that are commonly used by individuals to break down their product for sale, the affidavit alleged.
