Police say he's a notorious criminal and gang member whose been on the radar for quite some time.

“We obtained enough information to get a search warrant for his residence; and we executed that search warrant,” said Bryan Police Officer Kelley McKethan.

About a week ago Bryan Police recovered crack cocaine and marijuana and from James Edward Pennygraph the thirds home at the 3000 block of First Street. Pennygraph was released from prison less than five years ago, and according to police reports, he told investigators the crack cocaine and marijuana were his. Police say narcotics were not the only things recovered.

“Pennygraph was charged for the stolen items the found in the residence; one was an iPad, stolen out of Washington County and a Ruger Pistol -- stolen out of Brenham PD,” McKethan explained.

But the criminal allegations don't stop there. According to court documents, Pennygraph and a family member have known ties to an organized Tire/Rim Theft Ring out of Washington County.

“James Pennygraph hasn’t been charged, but he is associated with Ansel Pennygraph and the other members of the organized crime who are in charge of the tire and rim thefts,” added McKethan.

Prosecutors say Penngraph's charges have been enhanced since he lives 1000 feet away from a public school. Pennygraph is being held in the Brazos County Jail on $36,000 bond.
