RIESEL, Texas – A traffic stop in Riesel on Monday resulted in some interesting discoveries.

Authorities stopped a car for speeding, which then ran the red light. The car had four men inside, and none of them had a license. The car was then impounded.

During the inventory, numerous items considered to be drug paraphernalia were found – as well as cocaine. Also found was a rifle, a sawed off shotgun and a pistol.

Just as authorities were leaving the scene, Waco officers ended a pursuit just past a CEFCO. No injuries have been reported, and charges are pending.

Riesel PD was assisted by McLennan County Sheriff’s Deputies, the Mart Police Department, the Waco Police Department and the local Game Warden.
