The couple consented to a search of their car, where deputies found meth, around $2,000 cash, drug paraphernalia, marijuana and a revolver.

Seabolt was charged with trafficking in any illegal drug, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, persons forbidden to possess a firearm, and unlawful possession of marijuana 2nd.
