Indictments for drug possession, theft, DWI and burglary were among those returned here Wednesday by a grand jury.

Chavez was driving a car when police stopped him in connection with a gas drive-off the evening of July 29, 2014.

An officer spotted a suspicious looking container in the console. It was gone when  Chavez got back in his vehicle after smoking a cigarette.

Police searched the vehicle and the purse of a passenger, Cristal Landeros. They found a pipe containing methamphetamine residue in her purse. 

They found a baggie containing .30 of a gram of meth in Chavez’s headband.

Grand jurors indicted Landeros, 26, for possession of a controlled substance.

Levelland resident Eric Randy Lara, 35, was indicted for possession of a controlled substance.
