Three unrelated weekend incidents led to a total of six arrests on drug charges.

According to Brownwood police and sheriff's office reports:

Deputy Taylor Fletcher was driving on Commerce Street at 1:37 a.m. Monday when he saw a car leave the Walmart parking lot, run the stop sign and turn onto Romines. Fletcher made a traffic stop, arrested the driver on a DWI charge and called for a K-9. The dog alerted on the vehicle, and deputies found a small amount of methamphetamine.          

Fletcher arrested Lindsey Buzbee, 27, Jeromy Jones, 33 and Michael Penn, 45, all of Brownwood, on charges of possession of a controlled substance under 1 gram, Brown County Jail records state. Penn was also charged with DWI.

At 1:20 a.m. Monday, a Brownwood officer drove into the roadside park on Commerce next to Skillet's and saw a car parked behind the restaurant. A man and a woman were standing outside the car, noticed the officer and immediately go in the car. The officer pretended not to notice them and drove away, but drove around Skillet's.

The officer saw that the car was now parked in front of a room at the Value Inn. The man who'd been in the car saw the officer and walked away toward the pool area. Believing it to be suspicious, the officer spoke with the woman as she got out of the car.

The officer arrested Jonathan Branscum, 26, and Anna Coffey, 28, both of Brownwood, on charges of possession of a controlled substance under 1 gram.

At 1:58 a.m. Sunday, Fletcher made a traffic stop on Highway 279, and the driver consented to a search of the vehicle. The driver's license was under multiple active suspensions, Fletcher's report states.

Fletcher arrested Crystal Motley, 37, of Lake Brownwood, on charges of possession of marijuana under 2 ounces and driving with an invalid license.
