Court documents state Charles Edward Huller III and Lockwood were arrested after authorities found 10 cellophane-wrapped packages, each containing approximately 1 pound of suspected meth, in the trunk of the vehicle they were driving during a traffic stop Oct. 19 on I-35. Two grams of meth were later taken from Huller in the Freeborn County jail.

U.S. District Court documents state during a post-arrest interview, Lockwood said she was taking the meth to a customer in St. Paul, and Huller knew that at least 1 pound of meth was in the vehicle because they had used some of the drug during their drive from California.

Huller, who pleaded guilty to the same charge in January, is expected to be sentenced June 11.
