An Austin woman is in jail after police say they caught her with $19,000 worth of methamphetamine.

According to court documents, on Sunday, a contractor renovating the Crestwood Suites located at 12989 Research Blvd. in Northwest Austin told police he found a bag with guns and a lot of drugs inside.

The room was rented to 48-year-old Shanda Riffel, the arrest affidavit says. And police say the drugs have a street value of $800 an ounce.

Riffel is being held in the Williamson County Jail on $100,000 bond
