Killeen police arrested a man they believe is a drug dealer.

Police said they found multiple drugs on 32-year-old Nolanville resident David Deon Brown after they arrested him following a traffic stop.

Police pulled Brown’s car over shortly after midnight Sunday near the intersection of 16th Street and Harris Avenue after an officer saw him change lanes without signaling.

Brown did not have a license and appeared extremely nervous, an arrest affidavit stated.

While checking Brown’s identification, an officer discovered Brown had an active arrest warrant for an unspecified charge. Police took him into custody.

Police searched Brown at Killeen City Jail and found two bags of suspected narcotics. One bag contained 4.9 grams of suspected methamphetamine. The other had 9.5 grams of a substance that tested positive as cocaine, the affidavit stated.

Brown told police he was unemployed, but he had more than $550 in cash at the time of his arrest, the affidavit stated.

Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Brown on Tuesday and set his bail at $50,000. Brown remained in Bell County Jail on Tuesday.
