Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 17-year-old Houston man late Wednesday night for state jail felony possession of marijuana after he allegedly boarded a Kerrville bus with a duffle bag containing 3 pounds of marijuana and a pistol.

Drevon Jones is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a charge of possession of marijuana between 4 ounces and 5 pounds. No bond has been set at this time.
