A 26-year-old is facing multiple drug charges after officers reported finding marijuana, synthetic marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine during a Bryan traffic stop Saturday night.

According to an officer’s report, Benjamine Dale Leal of Bryan was driving a pickup on West 28th Street just after 7 p.m. when he failed to signal a turn. The passenger in the truck ran off during the traffic stop, the report states.

Officers reported finding 156 grams of K2, nine grams of methamphetamine, nearly 13 grams of marijuana, more than 15 grams of cocaine and six tetrahydrocannabinol vape cartridges.
