A search of the truck Steinbrink was driving revealed marijuana, drug paraphernalia and 3-ounces of meth with a street value of about $10,000.
The suspects are being held on $100,000 bond.
Steinbrink is also being held without bond for a probation violation.
Authorities have also arrested two other people in connection with the incident, but have not yet released their names.
