Deputies searched the vehicle, and found a handgun, about half-an-ounce of meth, a pill suspected to be Xanax and items associated with drug use.

Deputies arrested the driver, identified as 35-year-old Anthony Turner of Toney, Alabama on charges of possessing a firearm, enhanced first-degree trafficking in greater than two grams of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a handgun by a felon, and third-degree possession of a controlled substance.
