HEMET, Calif. -- A purse that fell off the roof of a car led police to a Hemet motel room, where officers found methamphetamine and cash and arrested the handbag owner and a friend Wednesday, a sergeant said.
Someone who saw the purse fall of a silver-colored car picked it up, found what appeared to be some meth and turned it over to police about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday, he said.
Police tracked down Miller at the motel and searched the room, finding about an ounce of the powerful stimulant and more than $4,000 in cash, the sergeant said.
