BRYAN A Bryan woman is facing several drug charges after police find prescription drugs and stolen items in her car and apartment.

29-year-old Stephanie Marie Sierra was arrested March 1st after officers saw her driving suspiciously near Villa Maria and College Avenue. According to the arrest report, Sierra had her two kids, ages 5 and 6, inside the car with her. Officers knew from previous encounters that Sierra's drivers license was expired and had 7 active suspensions.

Officers said they stopped Sierra's vehicle on February 28th and found three stolen firearms and methamphetamine. The report says that officers searched the car and found eight different pills inside a bottle. Sierra told officers that she had a prescription for all those pills, but didn't have a prescription on her or in the vehicle.

The report says officers asked Sierra if there was anything at her apartment that was illegal. She told them no, but they searched anyway because they had arrested her husband the day before. According to the report, officers found a kids model .22 rifle, lawn equipment that had been reported stolen, marijuana paraphernalia and more prescription drugs that weren't prescribed to her.

Sierra is facing four charges of Possession of a Dangerous Drug, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Driving with an Invalid License with Suspensions. Her bond is $22,000.
