ODESSA -- A Seagraves man and a Hobbs woman were both charged with drug felonies after police reported finding Xanax, hydrocodone, marijuana and methamphetamine inside the vehicle they were driving March 11, according to a weekend story produced by the Odessa American.

Officers saw a gray Volkswagen Passat at North County Road West and West 2nd Street with an obstructed view of the rear license plate at about 9:58 p.m. March 11. A traffic stop was conducted in the 2000 block of West 2nd Street and the driver was identified as Terry Wayne Bryant, 33, and the passenger was identified as 34-year-old Lisa Arcadia Padilla.

A warrant check revealed Bryant had a warrant for driving with an invalid license and was placed into custody, police reported.

Officers then searched the vehicle and reported finding multiple bottles of Xanax pills, a bottle of Hydrocodone pills, marijuana and a handgun hidden underneath a seat. A canine conducted an open air sniff on the vehicle and found 17.5 grams of methamphetamine concealed in a false bottom container in the center of the vehicle, police reported. Police then reported searching through Bryant’s cell phone and finding evidence of intent to deliver.

A total of $1,683, Bryant’s cell phone and other unreported items believed to be stolen were seized, police reported.
