That's what prompted Trooper Gary Meredith to stop the mini-van with Illinois plates. And that led to a search of the van, revealing 15 pounds of cocaine stashed inside. She'd told trooper Meredith she met a man in a Chicago car wash who asked her to deliver a package to North Carolina. She was pulled over in Wythe County a year ago.
