A College Station man was arrested Monday after a search warrant led to the discovery of THC products in his home, police said.

According to Bryan police, authorities suspected narcotics sales were coming from a home in the 2900 block of McLaren Drive, and a search warrant was granted on the home. On Monday, officers surrounded the residence to conduct surveillance.

According to police, two men were in a car parked outside the home, and a third man — later identified as Joseph Otis Taylor, 24 — was seen walking out of the house and getting into the parked vehicle. Authorities said something was exchanged with the occupants before Taylor went back to the house. All three men were detained, along with a member of Taylor’s family.

Authorities said three vape cartridges containing THC were found in the car, and the two men in the vehicle admitted they had purchased it from Taylor. Taylor admitted to police that he was in possession of drugs and sold them from the home, a report notes. Inside the house, police said they found 47 vape cartridges containing THC and homemade candy containing THC.

Taylor is charged with two counts of manufacture/delivery of THC. One charge is a first-degree felony, punishable by up to 99 years in prison; the other is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Taylor remains in the Brazos County Jail on $20,000 bond.
