CHAPMAN approached the driver and made contact with a male. The driver provided the name [REDACTED] and date of birth [REDACTED]. CHAPMAN then ask the two other passengers if they minded providing their name and dates of birth. The front seat passenger provided the name CASEY FULLER and date of birth [REDACTED] and the rear seat passenger provided the name [REDACTED] with a date of birth of [REDACTED].

SGT BEAM ask the driver if there was anything illegal inside his vehicle, the driver stated there was not. BEAM then ask if deputies could search the vehicle and verbal consent was given.
The other passengers were then ask out of the vehicle and BEAM and CHAPMAN began a search of the vehicle. BEAM located inside a bag where the female passenger was sitting in the rear seat, a small bag of a crystal-like substance.

At this time all three subjects were detained.
CHAPMAN and BEAM concluded the search finding a catalytic converter in the rear of the vehicle, which had fresh saw marks. The converter was not identifiable and was placed back into the vehicle. After the vehicle search the female claimed possession of the baggy of methamphetamine. Located inside the bag was a work identification card with the name BRITTANY LACK with a photo. CHAPMAN knew the photo was of the female he was out with. CHAPMAN then ask the female if she had lied about her name and she stated yes, her name is BRITTANY LACK.
CHAPMAN placed LACK under arrest with double locking handcuffs to the small of her back and checked for fit. CHAPMAN then placed LACK into the rear of his patrol vehicle and seat belted her in. LACK later told BEAM the driver had lied about his name also. CHAPMAN had already released the driver from detention, and ask him about his name, and he was then identified as JESSIE WILSON. WILSON was then placed under arrest for the false name.
