California Man Arrested in Record Meth Bust Appeared in Court Thursday

Posted by wlpo on November 4, 2016

If you get caught driving around a county record-amount of drugs, you can bet the penalty will be pretty stiff.

That’s the situation 33-year old Edgar Coronel from California is faced with. He pled “not guilty” Thursday in court to one count of unlawful possession of meth with the intent to deliver.

Police allegedly pulled Coronel over for a traffic stop at which time they found drugs in his car. The 13 pounds of “finished crystal meth” was reportedly the most ever found in LaSalle County.

If convicted he faces 15 to 60 years in prison. He’s currently at the LaSalle County Jail where he’d need to come up with $200,000 to get out.
