It seems to be a growing trend, arrests in drug free zones.
That is a 1,000 feet area surrounding places where kids usually are, like schools and playgrounds. The fines are heftier than they would be otherwise.
The latest arrests were made Wednesday.
Troy Pivonka and Lane Bryan of Bryan were arrested for possessing Methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Police say they pulled over the two, near Crockett Elementary in Bryan, when Pivonka failed to signal a turn.
Bryan allegedly had two glass pipes in his pocket, with traces of Methamphetamine. Police say they also found a bag containing the drug inside Pivonka's car.
Pivonka is being held on a $8,200 bond. Bryan's bond is set at $7,800.
