WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — A 29-year-old Wichita Falls man is in jail on a $100,000 bond after federal agents intercepted a package of 40 sandals with hollowed outsoles filled with more than 11 pounds of meth.

Leondray Hadnot is charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance over 400 grams in a drug-free zone.

Wichita County authorities say U.S. Customs notified them of a shipment they had intercepted.

It had 20 pairs of women’s sandals and each sandal had a vacuum-sealed container concealed in the sole.

The total weight of the meth was just over 11 pounds.

The meth was removed from the sandals, and a controlled delivery was made on the porch of a home in the 2200 block of Alice Avenue near Lamar Elementary on Friday.

The package was taken inside about 20 minutes later.

The Wichita County Sheriff’s Special Response Unit then served a search warrant and arrested Hadnot.

In addition to the meth in the sandals, agents said 3.5 grams was found inside cans in a round five gallon cooler.

Officers said Hadnot initially denied any knowledge of the meth but later admitted knowing a package was en route containing an illegal substance.

Hadnot has five previous arrests in wichita county.
