During a search of the vehicle, police found inside Deckard’s wallet a folded $10 bill. Inside that folded bill was crystal meth. A syringe along with a pill bottle containing cephalexin were discovered inside the purse. They also found a tire valve cover that contained a blue rubber glove. Inside the glove police found more crystal meth.
