Deputies say they found Tafoya lying in the backseat of the car with a bruise around his eye. Tafoya told deputies that he was punched by someone who accused Majarro of theft. He also told deputies that the two were on the side of the road because their car ran out of gas.

Three glass pipes containing a substance resembling methamphetamine was also found in the car, deputies said.
