RIVERSIDE, TX (KTRE) -

Two Riverside men were arrested and charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance following a brief high speed chase in Walker County Tuesday.

When law enforcement officers searched the suspects’ vehicle, they found four kilograms of methamphetamine, which has an estimated street value of $320,000, according to a press release.

Rando Saaverda-Ramirez, 34, and Rando Saaverda-Zumaya, 61, both of Riverside, were arrested and charged with first-degree felony manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. If convicted, each man could face 15 to 99 years or life in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

According to a press release, deputies from the sheriff’s offices in Walker and Montgomery counties received a tip that the two Riverside men were involved in “the trafficking of narcotics.” During the course of the joint investigation, deputies made a traffic stop on the suspects’ vehicle.

At first, the driver of the vehicle pulled over to the side of the road. He then fled the scene at a high rate of speed. However, the suspects were caught a short time later.

When the deputies searched the vehicle, they found 4 pounds of meth packaged in aluminum foil, the press release stated.
