A Dickinson man was charged with a felony drug offense Thursday, after police alleged finding ecstasy pills in the shape of cartoon characters, along with other drugs, in a car he was riding in.
Police stopped a red Chevrolet Impala on the 500 block of W. FM 646 in League City 4:41 p.m. for an obscured license plate, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Daily News.
Two people inside "appeared nervous and were heavily smoking cigarettes," according to the affidavit.
The officer took the people's name. The driver of the car, a woman, had an outstanding warrant and was taken into custody, according to the affidavit. When the officer asked the male passenger to step out of the car, she smelled marijuana, according to the affidavit.
The officer searched the car, and reported finding marijuana as well as a "plethora of narcotics" in an orange pill bottle found under the front seat, according to the affidavit.
The bottle held 28 ecstasy pills in the shapes of cartoon characters, as well as a white, powdery substance and Alprazolam, an anti-anxiety drug, according to the affidavit.
Both people denied ownership of the drugs, according to the affidavit.
Theodore Clay, 33, of Dickinson, was charged with possession of a controlled substance in penalty group 2. He was held on a $40,000 bond, and was still in custody at the Galveston County jail on Friday afternoon, according to jail records.
