A Bryan teen was arrested Sunday after authorities said he was dealing Ecstasy.
According to Bryan police, just after 11 p.m., authorities were dispatched to the 1800 block of Wilde Oak Circle on the report of a suspicious vehicle. Officers walked around the area and found a Ford Mustang with the windows down and the keys in the ignition. Authorities said the vehicle smelled of marijuana, and they contacted the owner, who said she had not given anyone permission to use her car.
A Lincoln then approached the area, and police said a man approached the vehicle, then quickly walked away, which led them to believe a drug transaction might have taken place. Authorities said the passenger, Joshua Nero Doyle Jr., 18, had marijuana on his pants. Inside the Lincoln, authorities said marijuana was found.
Doyle told police drugs would be found in the Mustang and the marijuana in the Lincoln was his. During a search of the Mustang, authorities said they found 79 Ecstasy tablets, marijuana and a digital scale.
The owner of the Mustang arrived at the scene and said Doyle is her son’s friend and had been staying at her home.
He is charged with dealing nearly 80 grams of Ecstasy, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison; unauthorized use of a vehicle, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail; and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $13,500 bond.
