Ramirez was held Monday at the Indian River County Jail without bond. Mcmahon was released Thursday from the county jail on $5,000 bond.

Before the deputy could ask the individuals inside if they called 911, he spotted the driver and front seat passenger snorting a white substance, reports show. The deputy then saw the passenger use a driver’s license to shape three more lines of the powder on a piece of paper laying on the center console.

More deputies arrived and helped to detain the driver, identified as Mcmahon, and passenger, identified as Ramirez, reports show. The white substance tested positive for cocaine, deputies said.

Deputies also noted Ramirez was currently on probation for a burglary that occurred in St. Lucie County.

Deputies arrested Mcmahon and Ramirez. Both have arraignments at 8:45 a.m. Sept. 6, court records show.
