Austin Woman Arrested Over Drug-Related Texts Left On Old Cellphone

BRYAN, Texas (AP) — A Central Texas woman has been arrested after a cellphone owner with a new number contacted police to report unwanted drug-related text messages.

Brazos County jail records show 43-year-old Jana Janean Closs of Austin was being held Wednesday on two counts of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. She also faces a charge of offering to deliver a dangerous drug.

Online jail records don’t list an attorney for Closs, who was arrested Monday by Bryan police.

Investigators say a person with a new phone number kept getting drug-related messages from an unknown individual. Bryan police took over the cellphone conversation and set up the drug-buy meeting.

Police confiscated methamphetamine, Xanax (ZAN’-ehks) and another prescription drug called Tramadol from Closs.
