BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two California residents are jailed with bond set at $2 million each after Ada County deputies found 10 pounds of methamphetamine in their car. Ada County officials say 24-year-old Oscar Gutierrez-Chavez and 19-year-old Areli Mejia are charged with trafficking.

Their preliminary hearings are set for Aug. 3. Prosecutors say narcotics investigators began the case in early July and agreed to buy 10 pounds of the drug at $12,000 a pound. Court records say the pair picked up the drugs in Northern California and drove them to Boise.

Undercover officers met with Gutierrez-Chavez and Meja in Boise on July 18 and found the meth hidden in their car. The car and $800 in cash also were seized. In June, deputies arrested a Southern California man in Boise and seized nearly 12 pounds of meth.
