Home search in Bryan nets drugs, six arrests

Eagle Staff Report

A search of a Bryan home Tuesday by the Brazos Valley Narcotics Task Force ended with the discovery of drugs and illegal weapons and the arrests of six people.

The task force and the Bryan Police Department executed a narcotics search warrant at a home on Davis Street at about 8 p.m. Tuesday, police officials said.

In the home, police said they found 2.3 grams of crack cocaine, 1.3 ounces of marijuana and three dosage units of clonazepam, which is prescribed to control seizures and relieve anxiety. Two residents were detained at the home, and one was found with additional drugs and a butterfly knife, police said.

Amos Sims, a 69-year-old Bryan resident, and Steven Gutierrez, a 19-year-old Bryan resident, were charged with drug possession with intent to deliver. Michael Jensen, a 21-year-old Bryan resident, was charged with possession of a prohibited weapon. Christopher Gafford, a 25-year-old Bryan resident, was charged with disorderly conduct.

Police also stopped a vehicle that left the home just before the search and charged Miguel Martinez, a 20-year-old Bryan resident, with drug possession and 18-year-old Scorpio Diaz, a Bryan resident, with possession of a prohibited weapon.

The task force searched the same home in July and arrested Sims then for drug possession, police said.
