He was nervous and unsure of his destination when Weatherford began questioning his reason for being on the roadway. Lopez was asked for consent to search his vehicle. He refused. A K-9 was called and gave a positive alert on the vehicle. A pipe with crystal like substance and a clear baggy with crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine were located in the vehicle.
