Yow, what a steep bail! $1700? Chump change, he probably makes that much an hour. Did they give the meth back to him so he could sell it to raise the bail?

I see 17,200.00 as bail.....I believe that when a person is caught with METH, they should ingest, smoke, snort, whatever the method is that is used to consume that drug, the whole amount that they have on them when caught. an ounce, pound, kilo, 10 kilos IT DOESN'T MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!TAKE IT ALL!!!!!!
