A Bryan man and woman were arrested early Saturday after authorities said they found synthetic marijuana and Ecstasy in a fast-food bag.

According to Bryan police, an officer was patrolling when he saw a man and woman walking along William J. Bryan Parkway around 12:30 a.m. The two, identified as Justin Rashad Claridy, 30, and Latrisha Rena Adams, 37, were wanted on misdemeanor warrants.

Police said Adams placed a fast-food bag behind Claridy, who was sitting on the ground. According to authorities, in the fast-food bag and a backpack Claridy was carrying were multiple packages of synthetic marijuana. Sandwich bags of Ecstasy were also found in the fast-food bag, authorities said. Adams had synthetic marijuana in her pocket and in her purse, a report notes.

Claridy is charged with delivery of synthetic marijuana, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison. Claridy and Adams are both charged with possession of Ecstasy, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison; and misdemeanor possession of synthetic marijuana.

What is the significance of the 'fast-food bag'? If they had bought food from an expensive restaurant would the bag be mentioned?

Last time I checked these drugs they had are illegal. Where and how did they get these drugs? I think that is a more important issue to examine than what type of bag they had the drugs in.


It's a minor detail. It's where the drugs were found. If they were found in her purse they would mention it. If it were found in a mall shopping bag they would mention it. If it was in one of her orifices they would mention it. It's *where* they found the drugs and that is it's only significance.
