Local Shoplifting becomes strange drug distribution case

Local Shoplifting becomes strange drug distribution case

A Scottsbluff woman who court documents say placed bags of methamphetamine in a body part to hide them from Police has been charged with possession and distribution of a controlled substance.

Court documents say authorities responded to a shoplifting situation Wednesday evening at Menards. Police arrested 37 year old Rosa Gamboa for placing two electronic tablets in her purse and having a pipe with a white substance that later tested presumptive for methamphetamine.

The documents say during a strip search at the jail corrections officers observed Rosa take several small bags containing a white crystallized substance from her body part and flush them down the toilet. Rosa did voluntarily hand over three bags with a similar substance to the officers.
