An Odenville woman is being held on a $1 million bond after being arrested for drug trafficking by the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office on Monday.

Wanda M. Pickens, 38, was pulled over Monday as part of a routine traffic stop. According to a statement from the sheriff’s office, the K9 Yance alerted police to the presence of methamphetamine in the vehicle. A search turned up about one pound of meth.

The St. Clair County Drug Enforcement Unit made the arrest with the assistance of the Odenville Police Department.

Bond was set at a court hearing Tuesday morning.

According to court documents, Pickens previously pleaded guilty to manufacture of a controlled substance in Cleburne County in 2010.

Alabama law defines trafficking in methamphetamine as possession of 28 grams, roughly an ounce, or more of the drug. It is a class A felony, punishable upon conviction by 10 to 99 years or life in prison.
