NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KETK) – The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office said they confiscated a baseball’s worth of meth, a large amount of cash and a firearm during a traffic stop on Friday.
According to a release, deputies were patrolling in the 4000 block of Northeast Stallings Drive around 12 p.m. on Friday when they noticed a vehicle speeding and failing to maintain a single lane, at times veering towards oncoming traffic.
The individuals in the car were identified as Jarvis Lanard Taylor, 35 of Nacogdoches, and Rileigh Peyton Windham, 29 of Center. Officials said during the traffic stop deputies learned that both individuals had outstanding warrants.
Authorities requested K-9s after Taylor declined a search of the car, and after a positive alert to the presence of drugs, a search was conducted.
While searching the vehicle, officials said they discovered over $3,000 in cash, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, a firearm, and “a baseball’s worth” or 4.85 ounces of meth.
Taylor and Windham were transferred to Nacogdoches County Jail. Taylor was charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled, unlawful possession of a firearm and their outstanding warrant. Windham was charged with possession of a controlled substance and their outstanding warrant.
