Woman given 15-year sentence for selling 'ice'

A woman who hid "ice" inside zongzi -- rice dumplings eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival -- and sold to her customer was sentenced to 15 years behind bars, the Xuhui District People's Court said today.

The woman surnamed Zhang was fined 30,000 yuan (US$4,702), according to the court verdict.

On June 9, Zhang ordered crystal meth or "ice" from her boss at the request of her friend. She picked up the drug hidden in a bag of zongzi the next day and sold 0.25 ounce of "ice" to her friend for 2,900 yuan, the court said.

She was caught at the scene and police also found nine packs of "ice" in her apartment.

Zhang's friend was not prosecuted in the same case.
