An Iola man lands himself in the Brazos County jail for the third time in five months on new drug charges.
The arrest report from Brazos County says they stopped a car for expired registration on Finfeather Road. When officers made contact with the driver, they asked why his registration has been expired since March 2021. He said it was due to him not having a catalytic converter, which caused him to fail inspection.
He told officers he also did not have a license due to a DWI suspension. Officers observed a container of Vodka, and the man said he had recently taken a shot. He was then asked to step outside, where he removed his jacket. Inside the truck, officers found a glass pipe with burnt brown residue inside. The man also told them he had another pipe inside his jacket. Also found inside the truck was prescription pills, namely Tizanidine, which he said were not his.
More pills were found in a cigarette pack in the center console, alongside another residue covered syringe in a tool box.
The driver, 52 year old John Victor May of Iola, was taken to jail on charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of a Dangerous Drug. He remains jailed on bonds totaling $11,000.
