The Bryan Police make drug bust
On January 22, 2009, The Bryan Police Department executed a narcotic search warrant at 4305 Boyett Apt. A, Bryan, TX. Citizens in the area made complaints to members of the Neighborhood Enforcement Team (NET) about quality of life issues. NET and patrol officers worked hard to gather intelligences and identified suspects that were directly related to the complaints. The Drug Enforcement Team (DET), Direct Deployment Team (DDT), Neighborhood Enforcement Team (NET), K9 Unit and the Tactical Response Team (TRT) performed a search warrant. Seized was 4.73 ounces of marijuana that was packaged and ready for sale, a loaded .45 caliber pistol and the defendantís 1994 Mercedes Benz 500S. Patrick Dewayne Brazzell, B/M, DOB 04/23/1975, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana > 4 oz < 5 lbs and a felon in possession of a firearm.
Possession of marijuana > 4 oz < 5 lbs is a State Jail Felony punishable with a confinement for a term from 180 days to 2 years in a state jail; and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000.
Felon in possession of a firearm is a Third Degree Felony and is punishable with a confinement for a term from 2 years to 10 years in prison; and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000.
This drug bust was made possible because of the open communication between the Bryan Police Department and the citizens of Bryan. This is the vision of the Bryan Police Department and the concept behind establishing the Neighborhood Enforcement Team. The citizens of Bryan communicated through NET the issues that affect the City of Bryan and NET, along with patrol, worked and relayed the information to DDT/DET. It is through these partnerships that the end result was a drug dealer off the street and the City of Bryan being one step closer to the safest City in the Great State of Texas.
