NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 29-year-old man on a long list of drug and other charges after they went looking for him in regard to an outstanding warrant Wednesday afternoon,
The man dropped a bottle of a liquid substance believed to be codeine outside his car, and a probable cause search of his car turned up cocaine, more codeine, and several white pills that were identified as Aplrazolam, according to the arrest affidavit.
Juquaylan Antwan Flanagan, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony possession of a controlled substance between 1 and 400 grams charge, a second-degree felony possession of a controlled substance between 4 and 200 grams charge, a second-degree felony burglary of a habitation charge, and third-degree parole warrant hold, a Class A misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance less than 28 grams, and two misdemeanor traffic charges.
Collectively, his bail amount has been set at $72,500 for four of the charges.
According to the arrest affidavit, NPD officers were patrolling an area of Nacogdoches in search of Flanagan because he had an outstanding warrant when they spotted Flanagan's black 2007 Buick parked at a residence on Arthur Weaver Street.
At that point, the officers spotted Flanagan walking toward his car. The NPD officers saw Flanagan open the driver's side door and grab an A&M Cream Soda bottle from inside his vehicle, the affidavit stated. As the officers approached Flanagan, he allegedly dropped the bottle on the ground and walked away from it.
He was arrested on outstanding warrants for burglary of a habitation, a parole violation, wireless communication in a school, and two misdemeanor traffic charges without any incident.
When the NPD officers picked up the bottled Flanagan dropped, they found that it contained a thick, syrupy substance believed to be codeine, the affidavit stated. Then the officers did a probable cause search of Flanagan's car and found "detectable amount of cocaine," more codeine in a prescription bottle, and several white Alprazolam pills in the center console, the affidavit.
According to the affidavit, the cocaine weighed 4 grams, and the codeine weighed more than 400 grams. The Alprazolam weighed less than 28 grams.
Flanagan was then taken to the county jail.
