GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say three Tulsa, Oklahoma, residents are accused of acting as couriers to bring 12 kilos of crystal meth to Mississippi.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1pnz8Lf) 23-year-old Christian Manuel Garcia, 27-year-old Refugio Garcia De Lira and 20-year-old Nancy Lizbeth Ramirez are being held for hearings in U.S. District Court in Gulfport.

The criminal complaints say the trio was arrested Saturday night after they arrived at an unspecified Gulfport location in two vehicles less than an hour apart. The complaint was filed by a Mississippi Highway Patrol officer assigned to a Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force.

They were arrested and brought before a magistrate judge Monday. An interpreter was called in and the three each asked for a preliminary hearing. They are held for preliminary and detention hearings set for next week.
