According to deputies, Ripley was driving and Sams was a passenger in the vehicle. They learned Sams had two outstanding warrants for his arrest and further investigation led to a search of the vehicle.

That's when deputies say they found 16.5 grams of methamphetamine concealed in a milkshake.

They seized it along with digital scales, a syringe containing a liquid substance, and $822 in US currency believed to be proceeds from illegal drug sales.

Ripley and Sams were arrested and taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.
