A Bryan man faces a felony drug charge after accusations he was selling crack cocaine.

According to Bryan police, just after 7 p.m. Friday, authorities received a tip about possible drug dealing taking place at an apartment complex in the 4300 block of Boyett Street. Officers responded to the area and spoke with two people in a parked car at the complex. An officer spoke to Riheim Japaris Phillips, 26, and noticed the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle, a report notes. Phillips, who was wanted on two misdemeanor warrants, was taken into custody as police searched the vehicle.

Wedged between the seat and the car’s center console, police said they found 25 individually cut pieces of crack cocaine in plastic sandwich bags. A report notes more than $700 in small denominations was found on Phillips, and a marijuana blunt was located in the passenger’s side of the vehicle.

Phillips is charged with delivery of 12.8 grams of crack, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $10,340 bond.
