(ABC 6 News) -- Two people were arrested early Friday morning after police say they found meth, marijuana and ammunition after a traffic stop. 

A Rochester police officer stopped a car on North Broadway near Northern Hills Drive just after midnight on Friday, January 24 for failure to signal. 


After stopping the car, the officer said the driver, 35-year-old Christopher Flores, had "marijuana residue" on his pants. 

The officer also got the passenger out of the vehicle and said he could see marijuana and methamphetamine on the floor of the car and on the center console. 

There was also a duffel bag on the console. 

According to Rochester Police Captain Casey Moilanen, between the bag and the car, officers found a total of 58 grams of meth, 43 grams of marijuana, 2 stolen license plates, a digital scale, two bullets, and a checkbook that didn't belong to either the driver or the passenger. 

Flores is facing charges of 1st-degree controlled substance sales, 5th-degree controlled substance posession, driving after revocation, no proof of insurance, and improper change of course. 

The passenger, 35-year-old Jerry Montanez Figueroa is facing charges of 1st-degree controlled substance, being a felon in posession of ammunition, and a warrant.
