TULSA — A woman was sentenced to 13 years in prison on Thursday after 10 pounds of meth was found in her vehicle in October.

The woman, Alicia Wright, 44, of Hemet, California, was sentenced to 13 years in prison followed by five years of supervised release.

Police said on Oct. 11, they conducted a traffic stop on the woman's vehicle in the 3200 block of South Harvard after she was speeding.

Police said a K9 alerted them to the presence of narcotics in the vehicle. Ten large one-pound packages of meth were found in the trunk hidden under the carpet.

“K9 Officers and their handlers are crucial to the interdiction of drugs in our community. Their specialized training and skill set keep us safe and drugs off the streets,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “Thanks to K9 Officer Jake and his handler, Corporal Griffin, another drug dealer is out of business. Alicia Wright will no longer be dealing methamphetamine in northeastern Oklahoma.”

Police said Wright had a prior drug conviction out of California.
