Ras Cates, 33, and his wife, Lizmixell Batista, 20, a stripper employed at Cheetah Gentleman's Club in Hallandale Beach, were pulled over on May 25 by officers after the couple's car cut off a police cruiser, the Miami Herald reported.

Officers searched the couple's car and seized six guns including three assault-style rifles, the cash, suspected marijuana oil and a few bottles of codeine cough syrup with no valid prescription. Cates and Batista were charged with "armed drug dealing among other felony charges."
