"The vehicle they were in was a blue hummer. they were in possession of several items that had been stolen in a couple vehicle of as well as marijuana," says Brian.

Jimenez is charged with possession or marijuana, burglary of a vehicle, reckless driving, evading arrest and assault against a public servant. His bonds total over 100-thousand dollars.

Espana is charged with possession of marijuana and burglary of a vehicle. His bonds total over 20-thousand dollars.
