Police: Couple from Rifle flew meth to Pennsylvania

James Handzus



Tamara Vincent



BLUE BELL, Pa. — A Rifle couple is charged with transporting methamphetamine to Philadelphia on board a small personal airplane.

Investigators say 51-year-old James Handzus and 41-year-old Tamara Vincent were arrested Friday after they met an undercover detective at a suburban Philadelphia restaurant with a pound of methamphetamine.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman says the couple flew Handzus’ single-engine plane to a small airport in Blue Bell, Pa. from Las Vegas.

She suspects the high-grade meth had originated in Mexico.

Ferman says Handzus flew to the area to sell drugs a few times a year. Authorities estimated the street value of the drugs seized last week at $64,000 or more.

Handzus and Vincent are both being held on $500,000 bail. It was not clear if they had attorneys.
