Police: Man arrested with assorted pills

DPS troopers arrested a 42-year-old Longview man after allegedly finding a mixture of pills in his vehicle, according to reports.

After pulling over Adrian Dimitri Jones near the 131 eastbound mile marker of Interstate 30 for a routine traffic stop, troopers said Jones was allegedly “nervous and shaking heavily.” Jones allegedly admitted to troopers he “drank the night before in the vehicle with friends and was unsure if any open containers had been left behind,” according to the report.

Upon completing a probable cause search, troopers allegedly located an open bottle of vodka and another open container within reach of Jones, as well as a digital scale, a “clear bag containing numerous smaller clear plastic bags” and a bottle containing “numerous pills in a cellophane-like packaging,” the report read.

According to the report, five of the pills “appeared to be homemade” and “were of similar shapes, colors and designs … in the past identified as ecstasy or MDMA.”

The other 15 pills ranged in markings, the report read, and three were not identifiable at all.

“The presence of the small digital scale … commonly used to weigh narcotics in their distribution suggested bags were possessed to aid in the distribution of narcotics or other illicit substance,” the report read.

Jones was taken into custody without incident and charged with possession of a schedule 2 controlled substance between 1 and 4 grams. He remains in jail on bonds totaling $10,000, according to records.
