Brownwood police recovered a car reported stolen in Abilene, arrested two people and cited a third for possession of drug paraphernalia after a traffic stop Friday.
Officer Aaron Taylor stopped a Dodge Ram pickup on Austin Avenue because the 1989 Toyota Tercel it was towing did not have stop lights, Taylor’s report states.
Taylor learned that the Tercel was reported stolen.
According to Taylor’s report, Antonio Greco, 40, was charged with theft of a motor vehicle. Richard McCann, 47, was charged with possession of a controlled substance. Earla Harvey, 37, was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police found three tablets of hydrocodone and a tablet of propoxyphene in the pickup, Taylor’s report states.
