A car traveling with two oversized bags strapped precariously to the roof led Livermore Police to find stolen bottles and cans, brass knuckles and methamphetamine.
Livermore police say they pulled over a Chevy Impala last month because the giant bags on the roof were unsafe for driving.
Upon further inspection, police learned that the bags contained bottles and cans from a nearby recycling centre. A third bag was found in the back seat of the car. Police estimated the materials were worth $200, which was returned to the recycling center.

Additionally, driver Denzel Green, 31, and passenger Jared Moynahan, 28, were each allegedly in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Moynahan also had brass knuckles and a stolen handicap sign, police said.
The arrests took place on December 21, but police announced the bust on Wednesday.
