Sonora, CA March 16 2017—An Idaho woman learned that when transporting illegal drugs in your purse you should also hold onto it tightly and never leave it behind.

Once deputies arrived on scene they were advised by casino security that the purse’s owner was still onsite. A further search of the purse’s contents turned up nearly 10 grams of meth, over $500 in small bills, and identification for 46-year-old Lynnette Leung of Twin Falls, Idaho.
Deputies did locate the owner of the purse and arrested Leung after reviewing video that showed that the purse had been carried into the casino by her.
Leung was charged with transportation and possession of meth for sale, as well as for having drug use paraphernalia after a meth pipe was found in one of her pockets.
Lueng had a bond posted at $20,000 and was bailed out of custody, according to sheriff’s officials.
