HOBBS, N.M. - A tip from an informant led police in Hobbs to the arrest of a woman who was trafficking methamphetamine.
30-year-old Crystal Castillo was picked up by police on Saturday for felony charges.
Officers were told last month that Castillo was selling methamphetamine to someone in the Big Lots parking lot close to the intersection of Bender and Dal Paso Street.
When officers arrived, they saw Castillo and a man leaving the parking lot in a car.
The vehicle was stopped in the 1800 block of Dal Paso where police found 30 grams of methamphetamine in Castillo's purse.
She admitted to officers that she had sold $40 worth of the drug to someone in the parking lot.
Castillo was picked up by police on Saturday.
