Deputies reported stopping a Chevrolet Tahoe around 1:44 p.m. Feb. 23 on FM 71 at county Road 4768 for a traffic violation. The vehicle was allegedly occupied by 17-year-old Bryer Ray Parnell and four juveniles.

Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Drew Fisher, in arrest reports, claimed he smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle on contact with the youth.

A probable cause search allegedly revealed a small bag containing pills that field-tested positive for MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine) or Ecstasy. Parnell allegedly admitted the pills were his and was arrested, Fisher alleged in arrest reports.

The vehicle was impounded. Parnell was taken to jail. Deputies transported the four juveniles to residences and the sheriff’s office lobby to await a ride home.

Parnell remained in Hopkins County jail Monday morning, Feb. 24. Bond was set at $10,000 on the possession of 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams of a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance charge, according to jail reports.
