Sunday, August 30, 2020, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Jamey Miller conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling 91 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour zone.
Trooper Miller made contact with the driver, identified as Ricardo Lizarraga, 40, from Missouri City, Texas. An odor of marijuana was detected coming from inside the vehicle and Lizarraga was not wearing a seat belt.
When questioned, Lizarraga stated there was not any marijuana in the vehicle; becoming very nervous and fidgety. Trooper Miller asked him again if he had any marijuana.
Lizarraga asked the front seat passenger, Jasmin Rodriguez, to retrieve a black purse from the floorboard.
The purse was given to the trooper, and contained a clear plastic baggy with green leafy substance, two vape pens with THC, and a metal grinder. The green leafy substance field tested positive for marijuana.
Trooper Miller asked Lizarraga if there was anything else illegal in the vehicle. Hesitantly, he answered no.
Lizarraga was asked if there were any firearms in the vehicle. He told Trooper Miller there was a pistol in the center console. He informed the trooper he was a convicted felon.
Lizarraga was transported to the Atoka County Jail. He is charged with possession of firearm after former felony conviction (felony), possession of controlled dangerous substance (misdemeanor), and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor).
