During a search of the vehicle, a pack of cigarettes was reportedly found in the front passenger floorboard near the center console, allegedly containing a baggie of a crystalline substance testing positive for methamphetamine. A vile of crystalline residue and two broken glass smoking pipes were reportedly located in the glove compartment. A zipper style binder inside the vehicle allegedly contained an ink pen body with crystalline residue inside. A plastic baggie containing several pieces of a crystalline substance testing positive for methamphetamine was allegedly located in the rear passenger floorboard of the vehicle. Fizer had been sitting in the rear passenger seat.

The officer of record reports Fizer claimed ownership of all the items.
