EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Washington state woman who authorities say was found with 24 pounds of crystal meth in her car during a Eugene traffic stop has pleaded guilty to felony drug charges.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/29KkCpl ) Teri Lynn Baker, of Kent, Washington, entered guilty pleas Monday to unlawful delivery and methamphetamine possession. As part of a plea deal, she faces nearly five years in prison for the November 2015 incident.

The 56-year-old woman had been stopped by an Oregon state trooper along Interstate 5 for speeding. Authorities say the trooper used a drug detection dog that discovered the meth inside a hidden compartment in the SUV.

She was arrested and taken to the Lane County Jail.

The judge said Monday Baker has attended all her court dates while out on pretrial release.
