A Bryan man who tells a DPS trooper he was returning to Bryan after eating a baked potato in Waller was arrested on a charge of possessing what is possibly more than one pound of cocaine. The trooper pulled over 35 year old Dontay Thomas on Highway 6 near Millican. According to the arrest report, the trooper made the traffic stop after recognizing Thomas as someone who had a suspended driver’s license. The trooper wrote due to the improbability of Thomas’s story, he asked Thomas if there was anything illegal in his pickup. After Thomas said no then denied a request to search the truck, the trooper requested a K-9 officer. The K-9 from the Brazos County precinct three constable’s office detected drugs. That led to a search and the discovery of 504 grams (almost 18 ounces) of what the trooper believed was possibly cocaine. Thomas is out of jail after posting a $25,000 dollar bond.
College Station police recovering six bicycles suspected to be stolen and a seventh which was confirmed to be stolen, was followed by the arrest of two men on charges of evading arrest. CSPD officers arrested no one related to the recovery of the bicycles, which followed citizen reports of seeing two men take what officers described were large quantities of bicycles to their apartment. Officers outside the apartment saw two men leave, and when officers asked them to stop, both men ran back inside…which is where they were arrested for evading. 26 year old Tyler Leon Davis is also accused of violating parole in an unrelated case. 30 year old Greggory Babin of Bedias, who was also arrested on charges of possessing methamphetamine and marijuana, is out of jail after posting bonds totaling $14,000 dollars. CSPD said most of the recovered bicycles were higher-end bikes. CSPD asks those who have had their bicycle stolen to file a report online at cstx.gov/onlinereporting.
