Nacogdoches police have charged four people with felonies in a traffic stop that turned up packages of drugs.

Police pulled over a driver in the 1900 block of Dolph Street around 3:51 p.m. Wednesday afternoon for a traffic violation, according to the department’s activity log.

“During the contact, officers located a variety of drugs, packaged for distribution,” according to the log. “A stolen firearm was also located inside the vehicle.”

The log lists two first-degree felony charges for manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance and two state-jail felony charges for possession of marijuana between 4 ounces and 5 lbs. Two Class-A misdemeanor charges for possession of a controlled substance and one Class-A misdemeanor for unlawful carrying a weapon are also cited in the log.

Nacogdoches Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brett Ayres said cocaine, Xanax and ecstasy were found in the vehicle. The firearm had been reported stolen in a vehicle burglary.

The arrest affidavits filed against the men report Deundre Tyvan Davis, 28, as the driver. Davis was initially arrested on an outstanding warrant.

The documents list drug paraphernalia such as a digital scale and plastic bags in the vehicle, as well.

Passengers Jonathan Roldan Garcia, 24, Hakeem Kevon Nash, 29, and Keundez Dawone Thorne, 24, all of Nacogdoches, were also arrested.

Davis faces two first-degree manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance charges, a state-jail felony for possession of marijuana, and two Class-A misdemeanors for possession of a controlled substance, as well as a paroled-warrant hold. His bond was set at $110,000.

Nash, Garcia, and Thorne were all booked on first-degree manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance charges, a state-jail felony for possession of marijuana, and one Class-A misdemeanor for possession of a controlled substance, according to jail records.

Thorne faces an additional state-jail felony for theft of a firearm and an additional Class-A misdemeanor for unlawful carrying of a weapon.

Nash and Garcia’s bail was set at $107,500, and Thorne’s bail totaled $115,000.

All four men were still incarcerated as of Thursday afternoon.
