A Brownwood man remained jailed Tuesday after a traffic stop Sunday morning that led to the seizure of nearly 30 grams of methamphetamine, police said.
    Roland Robledo, 28, of Brownwood, was booked into the Brown County Jail on charges of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and evading arrest, jail records state.
    According to an email from Brownwood police:
    Police Cpl. Brandon Miller initiated a traffic stop in the 1100 block of Duke at 11:30 a.m. on a traffic violation. The driver, identified as Robledo, parked in a driveway, got out and began walking away.
    Miller instructed the driver to remain in the vehicle, and the driver responded by yelling “no” and said he was on private property. The driver continued to walk away with Miller following him.
    The driver ran onto Cherry Street, where he was finally detained without incident.
    Miller located a glass smoking pipe commonly used to smoke illegal narcotics such as methamphetamine.  Also located in a jacket pocket was crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine.  

    In an unrelated case, Austin Clayton, 27, of Lake Brownwood, was arrested Sunday night on charges of burglary of a vehicle and possession of marijuana, police said. Clayton is free on bonds totaling $17,500.
    Officer Roberto Rodriguez was dispatched to an Oak Street residence at 6:30 p.m. on a report of a vehicle burglary, police said via email.
    Rodriguez met with the man who owned the home and vehicle, who was not present during the burglary. The homeowner’s small children were at home, and Clayton, who was responsible for watching the small children while the homeowner was away, was also present.
    Rodriguez conducted an extensive investigation that revealed Clayton was aware of a small lockbox inside the vehicle. The lockbox belonged to an unidentified male who was not present during the investigation.
    Clayton knew marijuana was inside the lockbox and allegedly tried to retrieve the box from the vehicle before the homeowner’s arrival, police said. The lockbox, containing individually packaged baggies of suspected marijuana, was recovered and Clayton was arrested.
Marijuana smoke set off smoke alarms
    In another unrelated case, police were dispatched at 3:20 a.m. Friday to the Budget Inn, 515 E. Commerce, for suspected drug activity, police said via email.
    Jaa Jones, 32, of Monroe, La., was arrested on charges of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. Jones remained jailed Tuesday in lieu of bonds totaling $24,500.
     Police were told the smoke alarms in a room were continually going off because the occupants were smoking marijuana.  
An employee said the occupant of the room was spoken to twice but continued to smoke inside the room. Officers were escorted to the room and made contact with the occupant, identified as Jones. Officers immediately detected the odor of marijuana and saw signs of marijuana use.
Probable cause was established to enter the room and detain Jones, who became defensive and attempted to resist officers’ instructions until he was finally placed in handcuffs.
  Officers saw smoking pipes and light torches consistent with the use of illegal narcotics in plain view. Officers also found marijuana and methamphetamine in the room, and Jones was arrested.
