Woman found in ice packed container

NEWPORT BEACH, California - A woman was found by police in a Rubbermaid container packed with dry ice during a routine drug raid at a California hotel, reports the Associated Press Thursday.

Monique Felicia Trepp, 33, was found fully clothed in the container in what authorities say does not appear to be a homicide.

Police were called to the Fairmont Newport Beach hotel Thursday evening to arrest 46-year-old Stephen David Royds on drug charges. Royds has not been charged in Trepp's death.

Trepp had several outstanding warrants for drug charges in Colorado. The charges stem from an arrest in 2005 in which she was bailed out by what her attorney called a significantly older man. That was the last time Trepp was in a court room.
