Police have made a weird find in a vehicle that had reportedly been stolen. Rivera was charged with possession of firearm after a prior felony conviction.

Jennings is charged with property of a stolen vehicle, transporting an open container of liquor, controlling a auto with a suspended license, and failure to hold a safety verification form.

Jennings was pulled over about 11 a.m. after an officer noticed that his vehicle tags were expired, police say. A cop pulled over the Ford over an expired tag and was shocked to find a terrarium in the backseat, housing a live Timber rattlesnake.

While Jennings was informing officers he had a gun in the console, police learned the vehicle had been reported stolen.

Driver Stephen Jennings and passenger Rachael Rivera were arrested after the unusual items were found in their vehicle on Wednesday morning in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

Similar to the Billy Ray Cyrus verse in the first remix, people were mostly amazed at how great Mason Ramsey's contribution was. Still, an artist of his caliber in the hip-hop genre at least somewhat paved the way for Lil Nas X's hit to become so popular.


The stop occurred at 11 a.m. on June 26 in Guthrie, Oklahoma, about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City, Sgt. Anthony Gibbs of the Guthrie Police Department informed NBC News on Thursday.

When police officers pulled over Stephen Jennings in Guthrie, Oklahoma, on June 26, they searched the auto and got a lot more than they bargained for. "The uranium is the wild card in that situation". Officers also said there were no charges related to the rattlesnake.

It was unclear how the uranium was obtained, but police said it wasn't anything to worry about.

The suspects also were not charged for possession of the rattlesnake.

"It happens to be rattlesnake season at the time, so he can be in possession of this rattlesnake because he has a valid lifetime hunting and fishing licence", Gibbs said.
