A Bryan woman arrested on a misdemeanor warrant Monday ended up with four felony charges after authorities said she hid Ecstasy, marijuana and cocaine inside a Bryan police patrol vehicle.
According to Bryan police, around 11 p.m., officers stopped a car along North Texas Avenue. The officers determined that two women in the car were wanted on misdemeanor warrants, and the women were searched and placed in a patrol vehicle.
An officer transporting one of the women — Tori Llaine Ross, 28 — noticed the odor of marijuana in the vehicle. When asked about the smell, Ross said she did not have any. At the jail, an officer was asked to conduct a strip search, but nothing was found, police said.
The transporting officer searched through the back seat of his vehicle and found several plastic bags in the rear cargo of the car. The bags contained 5.2 grams of crack cocaine, 2.5 grams of Ecstasy and 3.4 grams of marijuana, police said. Security footage from the car showed Ross withdrawing the drugs from her crotch area and pushing them through the bars of the cage while officers were outside the vehicle.
Ross is charged with delivery of cocaine, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison; tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison; possession of less than one gram of Ecstasy, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail; and misdemeanor marijuana possession. She remains in the Brazos County Jail on $19,000 bond.
