BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - Bryan Police arrested a suspected drug dealer Thursday after investigating for months.

Police say several drug users told them 18-year-old Jonathan Prado was dealing K2, a synthetic form of marijuana, out of his home on West 28th Street.

Police were monitoring him after he was released from jail in July following several charges, including evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance.

Officers raided the home on October 12 and found ziplock bags, scales, and 19 empty factory bags of K2.

Prado was identified when police found his high school ID from Los Fresnos High School, which is in south Texas near the Mexican border.

He was arrested Thursday and charged with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

Another 19-year-old was at the home during the raid and was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.
