Deputies also found marijuana — scales — pills — cash — plastic bags — and a gun.

“It just don’t make sense that these guys are riding, first of all, you’re not too smart doing drugs to start with. But then you gon’ ride around in a vehicle — ‘Dirty’ we call it in law enforcement — with dope in the car and alcohol in the car — and then you gon’ do a traffic violation,” said Granthum.

31 year old Rakeem Harris — and 29 year old Terrance Smith — were also arrested and charged.

All three suspects are being held in the Dallas County Jail.
