Police recovered 90 grams of marijuana and 10 grams of cocaine, according to a news release. The drugs were valued at several thousand dollars, police said.

Lopez-Jasso also was wanted on a Lake County warrant for failure to appear in court, stemming from a fleeing and eluding police charge, authorities said.
