COPPERAS COVE — Police on Thursday morning arrested a woman suspected of smuggling methamphetamine in her car’s air conditioning vent.

Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Angelica Rose Sager on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, more than 1 gram but less than 4 grams. Price set her bond at $8,000.

Police stopped Sager’s vehicle after an officer noticed it traveling in the 500 block of Meggs Street with a non-functioning license plate light at 2:51 a.m. Thursday.

An officer arrested Sager for driving while her license was invalid and no insurance, stated the arrest affidavit. During an inventory of Sager’s vehicle, a second officer located a silver canister in the driver’s side air conditioning vent.

The canister contained a substance the officer believed to be methamphetamine, the affidavit stated. It field-tested positive as the substance and weighed about 2.6 grams.

In an unrelated incident, police arrested Rebecca Matlenena Mays, who is suspected of stealing more than $3,000 from Walmart.

Price arraigned Mays on Thursday on a charge of theft, between $1,500 and $20,000. He set her bail at $5,000.

According to an arrest affidavit, a Walmart loss prevention officer approached Mays about several thefts between June 3 and June 8 totalling nearly $3,160.

Mays allegedly admitted to the loss prevention officer and Copperas Cove detectives that she took the money, the affidavit stated.
