Officer Christopher Lewellyn saw a male in a Ford Explorer parked at the gas pumps then drive away and park in front of the restrooms. While Lewellyn was speaking to the male driver, he saw a woman exit the store and walk past, who seemed to be exchanging signals with the driver.
Lewellyn asked the woman over and noticed in the front pocket of a sweatshirt a plastic bag that seemed to be marijuana. When asked about it, the woman admitted it was, but said she didn't have her marijuana card on her, but that it may be in the truck. When the door was opened, Lewellyn noticed a larger bag -- more than an ounce -- in door pocket of the driver side door.
A search by a female officer found two glass pipes and cocaine on the woman. Two wallets were found on the man, who'd been handcuffed for safety. One wallet had two sets of identification and the other had the man's real identification.
Roberto Nigel Valenzuela, 48, had warrants out for assault with a deadly weapon, car theft, threats and domestic abuse. He was charged with possession of stolen property.
Lillie Lillie Flowers, 41, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, marijuana possession and paraphernalia possession.
