Police said they also found a shrine dedicated to Santa Muerte, Mexico's folk hero of death; and a statue of San Simon, KNXV reported. San Simon is also known as Maximón, "a mischievous folk saint," according to National Geographic.
According to Maricopa County court records, "These saints are worshipped for protection from law enforcement and protection from rivals."
After obtaining a search warrant, police said they found 25 bundles of meth inside a door of Batista's vehicle, KNXV reported. Another six packages were found in a wheel well and 13 more inside the tailgate, the television station reported.
Batista has been charged with narcotics possession for sale.
