Strike teams were formed to execute the warrant simultaneously on suspects in a vehicle during a traffic stop and at the suspect's home on Thursday. BCSO Investigators Jason Benefield, James Stroope, and Carlyle Gover initiated the traffic stop of the suspects' car on Hwy 279 north of Brownwood, according to Gover.
