A Houston woman faces multiple felony drug charges following a traffic stop by a Houston Police Department officer on Sept. 8.
Belinda J. Bryant, 60, of 16464 Forrest Drive in Houston, is charged with felonies of possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance at a jail, along with misdemeanors of driving while intoxicated and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
An officer reported at about 8:30 p.m. Sept. 8, he observed a silver Ford Focus traveling north on Grand Avenue in the southbound lane and saw it turn west onto Pine Street and travel in the eastbound lane before finally moving over to the correct side. The officer reported pulling the car over and observed a half-full bottle of vodka in the center console and detected the smell of alcohol coming from the car.
Field sobriety tests were conducted, and when Bryant was asked if she had any drugs or weapons on her or in her purse, she said she didn’t, according to a report. Bryant was taken to the Texas County Jail, and during the booking process, a bag containing 3 ½ grams of methamphetamine and a spoon with residue were found in her purse, authorities said.
Bryant was charged on Dec. 11 and her bond is set at $200,000.
