arrested meth seized mesa county sheriffs officeFirst of all, we can’t believe a 13-year-old was driving down the interstate in Colorado, but the fact that there was also 25 pounds of meth inside? It’s almost unbelievable!

After a deputy stopped the vehicle, he found three people in the car, the 13-year-old who was driving along with German Michael-Arreola, 22, and Michel-Arreola, 19. Why on earth was the child driving when there were to adults in the car?!

The three consented to a search that the cop requested inside the vehicle, which is when the meth was discovered.

All three suspects, including the young boy, are now facing felony drug charges, including manufacturing, possession and distribution of a Schedule I/II substance.

The 13-year-old is also facing additional charges for driving without a license and failing to drive in a designated lane.

He is now being held at an area Youth Services Center, while the adults are being held in the county detention facility.
