Two men were arrested on a county road in eastern Henderson County July 3, for felony drug offenses.
Jacob Edward Kovarik, 32, of Frankston, was charged with possession of a controlled substance (three ounces to 28 ounces), possession of a dangerous drug and two warrants for traffic violations.
Kovarik was released after posting bond totaling $25,000.
Steven Lynn McMillan, 40, of Brownsboro, remained in custody with bond set at $25,000 on charges of possession of a controlled substance (three ounces to 28 ounces), possession of a dangerous drug and possession of a controlled substance (less than one ounce).
HCSO reports indicate that Dep. Jonathan Halbert was assisting Dep. Joseph Durr at a traffic stop on Farm-to-Market Road 4117, when he saw a white passenger car driven by Kovarik passing by.
The driver was known to have outstanding warrants, so Halbert initiated a stop, and positively identified Kovarik.
According to HCSO reports, as the officers inventoried the vehicle before having it towed away, Halbert discovered a metal cigarette case that contained several prescription pills and a white substance believed to be methamphetamine. Halbert also found a pill bottle that contained an unknown liquid.
Kovarik and McMillian, who was a passenger in the vehicle, were transported to jail for booking.
The drugs and the unknown liquid have been transported to the Texas Department of Public Safety for analysis.
