Two suspects were arrested on Tuesday in a Walmart parking lot in Converse, Texas where they were allegedly trying to cook meth.

Robert Robles, 34, and September Alvarez, 22, were taken into custody after police found a suspicious vehicle at about 3:00 a.m. and noticed an odor coming from the car. Officers searched the vehicle and found five stolen handguns, drug paraphernalia, ammunition and IDs that did not not belong to Robles or Alvarez. Police say that Robles provided them with a false name and discovered that he had a had a warrant in California for a probation violation.

After police took them into custody, Robles and Alvarez told reporters that they were unfairly targeted. “We were parked at Walmart just chilling, talking,” Alvarez told KSAT-TV.

The suspects were charged with “possession of a controlled substance, theft of a firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, unlawfully carrying a weapon and unlawful possession of identifying information,” according to KTSA.
