Kelvin Simmons

A Killeen man was arrested after police found him in his car sleeping, authorities said.

On Sunday, police were dispatched to a gas station located on Trimmer Road, in reference to “a subject asleep in their vehicle,” according to an arrest affidavit.

When the man, later identified as Kelvin Simmons by police, was given a routine warrant check, it produced active warrants for parole violations.

“While Simmons was arrested he dropped a pill police suspected as MDMA that was later weighed less than a gram and tested positive for methamphetamine from a reliable field testing kit,” the arrest affidavit said.

Police said they also located a plastic “baggie containing a white powdery substance they suspected as cocaine on Simmons’ person.”

The powder was tested positive for cocaine, according to the affidavit.

Simmons was charged with possession of a controlled substance and was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Daryl Peters on Monday.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Simmons was in custody at the Bell County Jail with bail set at $20,000. | 254-501-7567
