Three people from California who were arrested last week for possession of methamphetamine following a traffic stop in Western Iowa’s Cass County, now face additional charges. 31-year old Irie Jaramillo, 38-year old Alfredo Jimenez and 30-year old Greg Villegas — all from Visalia, California — were arrested Thursday afternoon, after the Ford Thunderbird they were in was stopped for speeding along interstate 80 at mile marker 58. The county K-9 unit initially aided in the recovery of a small amount of meth and marijuana valued at around 200-dollars, but a more thorough search of the vehicle uncovered eight-pounds of meth that was hidden in the car’s drive shaft. The stash has a street value of at least 400-thousand dollars. The trio are currently being held in the Cass County Jail on charges of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, and related charges. In addition, Jaramillo faces charges of forgery, because she claimed to be another person, and signed checks and other paperwork as someone else.
