LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Three men were arrested during a traffic stop for trafficking methamphetamine over the weekend. 

On Saturday, a deputy with Leon County Sheriff's Office observed a white older model Ford truck with a white LED light bar centered in the middle of the front bumper, which was blinding to other drivers on the roadway. 

Reports say the deputy checked the plate numbers on the truck. After checking the plates on the truck, it was determined that the owner of the truck licence had been suspended. 

After pulling over the truck, the driver was identified as Anthony Allen II and the two other passengers present were identified as, Steven Goodman and Thomas Harper. 

All three of the men were questioned separately and while questioning Harper, the deputy saw a digital scale in the front passenger floor board of the truck with white residue on it. 

Allen claimed they rode to Georgia to go to Walgreens and picked something up. Allen would not tell the deputy, what exactly they picked up. 

The deputy was given consent to search the vehicle and during the search they found another digital scale and a small sandwich bag with white rock like substance inside of it, presumed to be meth. They also found a glass pipe with residue on it. 

In all, they found 16 grams of suspected meth in the truck. 

While attempting to detain the suspects, Goodman tried to flee from the scene on foot, but was tazed after ignoring commands to stop. 

Police say the men tried to blame each other for the drugs, so all three were arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine. They were then transported to the Leon County Jail.
