REEDSPORT, Ore. - Two people face drug charges after police found 4 pounds of methamphetamine in cooler in their car early Wednesday morning.

The investigation started when a police officer stopped a car on suspicion of DUII.

The officer noticed drug paraphernalia in plain view as he talked to the driver, 18-year-old Sergio Llamas-Fernandez of Vancouver, Wash.

Neither Llamas-Fernandez nor his passenger - 33-year-old Ashley Dawn Gomez of Vancouver, Wash. - had valid driver's licenses, police said.

During a search of the vehicle, police found 4 pounds of meth in a small cooler.

Police arrested both occupants of the car on charges of Possession/Delivery/Manufacture of Methamphetamine.

Llamas-Fernandez also has an INS detainer due to his immigration status, police said.

They are being held at the Douglas County Jail in Roseburg, Ore.
