Deputies found $1,100 in cash and a Ruger .45 caliber handgun and ammunition in Clemente's vehicle, Faulkner said.

During a search of Clemente's apartment, narcotics investigators found four ounces of methamphetamine, four ounces of marijuana, 22 Ecstasy pills, 39 Vicodin pills, digital scales and packaging materials, Faulkner said.
