A deputy’s traffic stop Tuesday night led to the seizure of 28 grams of methamphetamine and the arrests of two people, sheriff’s officials said.
    Deputy Taylor Fletcher arrested Adam Funderburg, 39, of Zephyr, and Jessica Womack, 33, of Brownwood, on charges of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance  over 4 grams under 200 grams, Brown County Jail records state.
    According to Fletcher’s report:
    Fletcher stopped a Dodge Durango SUVat 9:23 p.m. for having a defective high mount brake light and obstructed front license plate. Fletcher spoke with the driver — identified in Fletcher’s report as Jessica Goodwin but in jail records as Jessica Womack — and with Funderburg, the passenger.
    Fletcher noted that Funderburg was sweating profusely. Both told Taylor they were coming home from Abilene and said Funderburg was having diabetic complications.
    Fletcher spoke with sheriff’s narcotics investigator John Harper by phone, and Harper said he had information about possible meth dealing.  Harper said it was likely methamphetamine was being being transported to Brownwood.
    Funderburg denied consent to search the vehicle and said he needed to get home to get his medication. Harper responded to assist and requested the Early Police Department’s K-9 unit.
    Funderburg refused Fletcher’s repeated offers for an ambulance to attend to his claimed medical issues. Funderburg repeatedly denied the need for medical assistance but continued to claim medical complications as a reason he needed to leave immediately.
    Fletcher believed Funderburg was possibly trying to conceal or distract from contraband in the vehicle. Funderburg was taken by ambulance to BRMC, and Jambo, the Early drug dog, alerted to narcotics in the vehicle. Deputies conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and found a bank bag with methamphetamine hidden in the dash.
    Deputies also found a digital scale with meth residue in the vehicle, along with Funderburg’s medication. Funderburg was released from the hospital a short time later and arrested, along with Womack.
