PHOENIX - Phoenix police have taken a man and woman into custody after they were found with a large amount of cocaine and methamphetamine.
Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Thursday that 29-year-old Guadalupe Romero-Beltran and 34-year-old Liliana Margarita Reyes have been booked on charges of possession of narcotics and dangerous drugs with the intent to sell.
