Mail Carrier Caught With Meth

Siskiyou Sheriff's Dept.

Apparently, a secure job with the US Postal Service just wasn't enough for Crabill.

A Northern California postal carrier is behind bars after she was caught carrying a lot more than just bills and junk mail.

Michelle Rebe Crabill was arrested during her delivery rounds in Redding Thursday after police searched her vehicle and found meth and much of the material need to smoke and sell the junk.

Agents with Siskiyou County-wide Interagency Narcotic Task Force found 7.57 grams of meth packaged for sale, prescription drugs, documentation of sales, packaging material and a glass smoking pipe in her Crabill's vehicle, police said.

When they searched Crabill's home, narcotics agents and Yreka police found an even bigger surprise -- nearly 35 grams of methamphetamine, packaging materials, hypodermic syringes, smoking pipes, a drug scale and documentation of sales.

A 15-year-old girl was also at the house and was taken into custody of Child Protective Services.

Crabill, 43, was booked at the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Jail for possession of methamphetamine for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia, transportation of methamphetamine, maintaining a household for the purpose of selling a controlled substance and possession of Vicodin and Oxycontin.

She is in custody with bail set at $25,000.
