Sheriff's deputies and DPS troopers assigned to the DEA Task Force initiated a traffic stop of Jalomo and Driskell’s vehicle. A K-9 was used to conduct a search and uncovered the meth on the rear passenger floorboard and a gun inside the center console, the sheriff’s office said.

Jalomo was detained without incident, but Driskell allegedly tried to punch a trooper before fleeing. He was apprehended by DEA and DPS, the sheriff’s office said.
