Deputies Find Loaded Handguns, Drugs, A Screaming Kid And A Very Annoyed Pit Bull After Woman Forgets To Wear Her Seat Belt
Soquel, California (The Weekly Vice) - Sarah Pippo, 29, and Jesse Peters, 37, were arrested Tuesday after deputies discovered two loaded handguns, drugs and the couple's crying son after pulling vehicle over for seat belt violation..
According to Santa Cruz County authorities, Pippo and Peters first attracted a deputy's attention when he appeared to be driving suspiciously. After noticing the female passenger wasn't wearing a seat belt, the deputy went ahead and pulled the couple's truck over.
After the deputy observed Peters acting nervously and reaching for something in his pocket, he asked the couple to step out of the vehicle, so he could conduct a pat down search.
While searching Peters, deputies found a loaded .22 caliber handgun and methamphetamine hidden in his pocket. When deputies patted down Pippo, they discovered a large stash of meth (67 grams) hidden inside the woman's panties. A second loaded handgun was found in the trucks center console.
Investigators couldn't help but notice one more thing in the car - Peter's 7-year-old son who was crying hysterically in the back seat.
Peters was booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail on charges of driving under the influence of drugs, possessing and transporting methamphetamine for sale, carrying a loaded gun while possessing drugs for sale and child endangerment. His bail was set at $385,000.
Pippo was jailed on suspicion of possessing meth for sale. Bail in her case was set at $10,000.
The child was taken into protective custody while a pit bull that was also in the vehicle was turned over to animal services.
