ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office arrested two people who are now charged with possession of a controlled substance.

August Joe and Renee Cryer, both from the Houston area were arrested after deputies pulled their car over for following too close. After approaching the car they smelled a strong odor of marijuana. The deputy then searched the car and found approximately one and a half ounces of cocaine under the console.

The suspects had the drugs covered in mustard and peanut butter. Deputies say that's a common practice to conceal the drugs.
