BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Baton Rouge police confiscated three dozen bottles of liquid methamphetamine from the suitcase of a Houston woman who was on a commercial bus headed to Atlanta.

Cpl. L’Jean McKneely tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1tgPhNf ) police stopped the Tornado Bus Co. vehicle around 12:15 a.m. Monday on Interstate 12.

McKneely says a drug-sniffing dog searched the bus and alerted police to at least one suitcase in particular. In it, McKneely says police found numerous soda bottles filled with clear methamphetamine in liquid form below a pile of clothes.

Police arrested 34-year-old Vanessa Hernandez. She was booked on counts of possession of Schedule II narcotics in excess of 400 grams.

McKneely says the 36 bottles of liquid meth have an estimated value of $700,000.

It was unclear whether Hernandez has an attorney.
