Two teenagers were charged with four felonies on Wednesday evening after police discovered narcotics, a firearm and cash in the vehicle they occupied.
The white Volkswagen stopped at the intersection of Front and Adams after the officer activated his emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop. When Alice police Officer Albert Stout made contact with the 16-year-old driver, he detected a strong odor of marijuana.
With probable cause and the use of the Alice Police Department's K9, police found 10 large bags of marijuana with a total weight of 305 grams, a gun, 10 vials of THC extract with a weight of 156 grams, 10 Ecstasy pills and approximately $100 in cash, according to Officer Herman Arellano.
The juvenile and 17-year-old Valerie Martinez, passenger, were immediately detained.
They were charged with unlawful carry of a firearm, possession of marijuana, manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance.
Martinez was transported to the Jim Wells County jail. The juvenile boy was taken to a juvenile detention center.
