Police in Fort Morgan, Colo., say they found 16 pounds of methamphetamine in a car after one of the accused called 911.

According to media reports, Jonathan Potzler, 28, called 911 on July 11, 2015 saying he was in a local Walmart parking lot and a woman he did not know was refusing to get out of his rented Nissan Versa.

He also told the dispatcher that he believed he was in Arizona.

Police arrived to find Potzler and Jazmin Elguezabal, 21, who said she was his cousin.

Almost immediately, police found numerous packages of meth, totaling 16 pounds, in the car all wrapped in foil to resemble breakfast burritos and covered in slime. Police said the grease is used to throw off drug-sniffing dogs.

The drugs had a street value of $700,000.

Potzler, who was evidently high, continued to NOT recognize Elguezabal and maintained that he was in Arizona.

Potzler and Elguezabal were both charged with multiple felonies, including unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful distribution, and manufacture and dispensing or sale of a controlled substance.
