A Brownwood man was arrested late last week on the charge of delivery of marijuana less than 5 pounds after local law enforcement identified illegal drug activity occurring in a drug free zone.
Detectives from the Brownwood and Early Police Departments responded to the activity a little after 5 p.m. Friday in the 300 block of Bluffview Drive, and arrested Matthew Chase Wilson, who was booked into the Brown County Jail but later released after posting bond, jail records state.
Assistant Police Chief James Fuller of the Brownwood Police Department said in a release that the 29-year-old was attempting to “actively sell” 1 ½ pounds of marijuana near Northwest Elementary School.
“[The detectives] were consistent with the information they were provided,” said Fuller, who noted that though Wilson was the primary suspect, the investigation is still ongoing and more arrests are expected.
In an unrelated manner:
A Brownwood man was arrested Friday for his third driving while intoxicated charge, a third-degree felony in the Lone Star State, jail records state.
According to Brownwood PD arresting officer Brian Rice’s police report, Daniel Diaz, 56, “stumbled” out of his vehicle once he reached his home in the 1600 block of Seventh Street. Rice — seated in his vehicle down the street after receiving his second call of a domestic disturbance at the same residence — then gave Diaz a sobriety test before failing and taken to the county jail.
Earlier, according to the report, Rice was dispatched to the same residence the first time on a domestic disturbance. When he arrived, the complainant said both parties left the residence prior to Rice’s arrival, and that there was no physical altercation.
After the second call for the same incident, Rice wrote that he “sat down the street” and waited for Diaz to return.
