While on routine patrol, an FCSO deputy conducted a traffic stop around 6:49 p.m. Sunday on a GMC pickup speeding on US 77 South near Schulenburg. According to FCSO, a passenger was "exhibiting very nervous behavior" when the deputy made contact with the driver. 

The deputy and a DPS trooper obtained permission to search the truck and reportedly found a small leather pouch in the passenger seat. The pouch contained two small baggies of a crystal-type substance, two crystal rocks believed to be methamphetamines, 16 Xanax pills, ecstasy pills and two glass pipes used to smoke meth, says FCSO.

Linnett was arrested and transported to the Dan R. Beck Justice Center.
