Jail the Toll from Toll Road Stop

(La Porte County, IN) - Another highway drug bust has been made in La Porte County. A woman from California was found with methamphetamine.


According to the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office, 53 year old Machelle Woodall was stopped Monday on the Indiana Toll Road near Rolling Prairie because her tinted front windows were too dark, before she then improperly switched lanes.  The drugs were allegedly found during a traffic stop with help from a K-9 dog.


So far, police have not disclosed how much methamphetamine was located in the vehicle.


Over the past couple of years, though, a number of drivers carrying large amounts of marijuana and narcotics from the west coast have been arrested on that same stretch of the Toll Road during special patrols aimed at the war on drugs.  


Woodall is being held in the La Porte County Jail on $20,000 bond.
