The Stephens County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Comanche man they say is accused of intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance.
According to court records, Bralynn Daniel Parker, 28, resides in the Stephens County Jail and faces charges of possession of controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute and destroying evidence.
Police records obtained from the Stephens County Courthouse show the bust happened around the end of March at a local motel after a deal was set up via social media for the sale of an ounce and a half of methamphetamine for $910.
When law officers arrived at the scene, they allegedly saw Parker outside near a basketball goal. When he went inside the motel, the lawmen followed and knocked on the door advising who they were.
When Parker stepped outside, he was placed in hand restraints and detained along with the others in the motel room.
Upon talking to Parker in an interview, Parker told police he had a “couple balls” — a common slang term used to referring to a specific weight of methamphetamine — and that he had put some, at least 21 grams, down the toilet but wasn’t sure if he had flushed it or not because “it all happened so fast.”
Parker told police in the interview he “used his stimulus check to buy the methamphetamine to resell it to make some money to help him get back on his feet.”
A search warrant was written by investigators and granted by a local judge. Inside the motel room, law officers found 9.4 grams of methamphetamine in a nightstand drawer, a wallet with Parker’s information in it, a set of digital scales, multiple clear plastic baggies, a syringe with a clear liquid inside, money transfer receipts which “are commonly associated with the ongoing trafficking/distribution of illegal narcotics” according to law officers.
Parker was arrested and transported to the Stephens County Jail and the rest of the individuals in the room were let go.
Parker remains in Stephens County Jail on a $100,000 bond and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing conference at 9 a.m. May 19, 2021.
