Man arrested for meth possession, drug paraphernalia, child endangerment, and tampering with evidence

A man was arrested in New Braunfels on multiple charges, including Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Child Endangerment, and Tampering with Evidence, early on September 17.

Police officers stopped James Allen Davis, 50, of Pittsburgh, who was inside a vehicle with 3 teenagers and a woman in a Motel 6 parking lot. He was holding a lidded Styrofoam cup and appeared to be uneasy. He was asked to step out of the vehicle and produce identification. When he couldn’t, he tried to get rid of the cup by handing it to one of the teenagers.

The officers then asked him to remove the lid and discovered a glass pipe inside. Methamphetamine was also found inside a flashlight by the K-9 unit called to the scene.

Davis was taken under custody in Comal County Jail and formally charged. No bond has been set.
