GA Police Bust Bus Passenger Carrying 79K Ecstasy Pills

Associated Press

February 02, 2011

LAGRANGE — Authorities arrested a Columbus woman taking a bus from Atlanta after police found more than 79,000 ecstasy pills in her duffel bag.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that 18-year-old Yasmeen Fogle has been charged with trafficking in ecstasy and possession of cocaine. Authorities say the ecstasy in her bag was worth more than $1.5 million.

LaGrange police found the 33 pounds of ecstasy during a random search of the Greyhound bus Friday night.

Sgt. Mark Cavender says police frequently search Greyhound buses stopped in LaGrange because I-85 is a corridor for moving drugs and drug money.

Fogle was being held without bond in the Troup County jail.

Cavender says it’s possible Fogle will also face federal charges given the amount of drugs she had.

    Yasmeen you still owe the "boss" for the pills. Were they for personal use?
