Two people from California were arrested on drug charges after a stop by police in western Iowa’s Cass County. Authorities say a vehicle occupied by Saul Muro and Bianca Azucena Muro, of Los Angeles, was pulled over at around 10 p.m. Monday during a routine traffic stop.
After questioning the driver and passenger, the vehicle was searched, resulting in the discovery of 4 kilos of cocaine and 5 pounds of marijuana that was hidden in a compartment under the driver’s and passenger side seats.
The pair faces charges that include possession with the intent to deliver cocaine, and marijuana. Saul Muro was also wanted on a federal warrant with the U.S. Marshal’s Service for amphetamine sales. The Muros were seen by a magistrate, who set their bond at $22,000.
