Man arrested in College Station drug bust

Local

The College Station Police Department’s Special Investigation Unit recently performed their biggest narcotics seizure in Brazos County history.

The unit executed a narcotics search warrant on March 29 in the 400 block of Southwest Parkway.

This was done with the assistance of the CSPD SWAT Team, and was the culmination of a joint Brazos County Law Enforcement Agency investigation over the past 12-18 months.

During the execution of the search warrant, a large amount of narcotics was discovered inside the residence. More than 24,000 ecstasy pills with an approximate street value of $242,000, just under four ounces of cocaine with a street value of $3,415, crack cocaine valued at $200, a small amount of marijuana, approximately $23,000 in U.S. currency and jewelry deemed to be proceeds from the illicit sale and distribution of narcotics were all seized.  

A stolen firearm and gang paraphernalia were also found and seized during this search. This narcotics seizure is more than two and a half times the amount of any other seizure in Brazos County history, according to area investigators.  

The total value of narcotics, currency and property seized was over $250,000.  

26-year-old James Dionte Hood was arrested and charged for Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance (greater than 400 grams).
