An Ardmore woman was arrested Monday after police allege she was trying to traffic illegal drugs.
Araya Quesada, 24, was arrested at 2:31 p.m. after police found 69 tabs of Ecstasy, a large amount of Xanax, envelopes of money, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
Ardmore Police received a call from Quesada’s roommate who returned home to find a large amount of drugs and money on the counter, Ardmore Police Capt. Keith Ingle said. Quesada’s roommate owns the home and had no knowledge that the roommate was selling drugs, Ingle said.
“She had 69 tabs of Ecstasy, which is double the amount necessary for trafficking charges to be filed,” Ingle said. “There were also envelopes full of money and labeled as profits from selling Xanax, another for marijuana and another for the Ecstasy.”
According to Oklahoma law, possessing 30 tabs, or 10 grams, of Ecstasy is enough to face trafficking charges.
Quesada faces one count of felony drug trafficking, felony distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, felony possession of marijuana and one count of misdemeanor drug paraphernalia.  
Ingle said the marijuana possession was elevated to felony status because the drugs were packaged for distribution.
Drug trafficking carries serious penalties under Oklahoma law, which vary depending on the type of drug and amount involved. However, drug trafficking can carry prison time of four years to a life sentence and fines up to $500,000.
Quesada was booked into Carter County jail were she awaits her next court date on Monday at 9 a.m. Her bond us currently set at $50,000.
