The driver was identified as Jonathan Waters, 26, of Aledo. A search of the vehicle allegedly yielded less than 28 grams of a controlled substance. Waters was charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and booked into Parker County Jail. He was released Monday afternoon on $2,500 bond.

Inside the residence on South Lamar Street, police found Megan Taylor Stevens, 21. Stevens was allegedly in possession of less than 1 gram of heroin, less than 1 gram of methamphetamine and less than 28 grams of Suboxone (buprenorphine).
