A marijuana dealer is caught in the act selling drugs to undercover police -- but what's even more disturbing -- authorities say he had a small child inside his car at the time.

Gavino Acosta III is arrested after selling marijuana to undercover police officers. The undercover investigation has been ongoing since November 2011, where police met up with the suspect at a Shell Gas Station on the 2000 block of Texas Avenue; 3400 block of Campus Drive in Bryan [450 feet away from Bryan High School] as well as the 890 block of N. Harvey Mitchell Parkway.

Authorities say on November 15, 2011 Acosta pulled into the Hasting’s parking lot in Bryan to make a $50 marijuana deal with undercover police. Inside his maroon pick-up, police located a female passenger who had a small child in her lap as well as three male juveniles in the backseat.

This makes for Acosta’s 15th arrest since 1997.
