Two men have been arrested after an Orange County Sheriff's Deputy says they threw a meth pipe out of their truck window as they drove near an elementary school.

Detectives say they saw a black Chevrolet pickup veer onto the shoulder of the roadway and then crossed the center dividing line on FM 105 near Granger Lane.

Detectives conducted a traffic stop on the black Chevrolet truck.
