A traffic stop for speeding lands a Navasota man in jail on a list of drug charges, some dating back to May.
That happened on Highway 6 near Westward Ho, when a deputy with Brazos County stopped a Ford F-150 for going 85 in a 75 mile per hour zone.
The officer recognized the driver from pervious dealings as a methamphetamine and heroin user. He also observed a large kitchen knife near the right leg of the driver.
The driver, 31 year old Trevor Hayes of Navasota and the passenger, identified as 51 year old Brandon Nichols of Navasota, were asked to exit the vehicle. Nichols stated they were heading to his residence in Navasota, saying he knew Hayes from high school. The officer noted their age difference, then Nichols said he didn’t know how he knew Hayes.
Hayes then was asked to empty his pockets, where a syringe was found with traces of methamphetamine. Inside the truck, officers found a small baggie of meth, 9 total syringes, 1 spoon with narcotic residue, 2 vials of narcotics residue, 3 torch lighters, and another baggie with meth residue.
Hayes was arrested and charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance. He also faced bond revocation from a similar incident in May and July, where he was released after facing two Manufacture and Delivery of Controlled Substance charges, plus six total Possession of Controlled Substance charges.
At last check, he remains in the Brazos County jail on bonds that total $176,000.
