A College Station man was arrested early Thursday after authorities said they searched two of his vehicles and found a variety of drugs.

According to College Station police, around 3:10 a.m., officers were patrolling an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Harvey Mitchell Parkway South to watch for possible burglaries.
