All three remained behind bars Saturday on $12,000 bonds on Collins and Lopez and a $46,000 bond on Hayhurst. The driver of the car was also being held at the Brazos County Jail on a failure to identify charge.

Originally stopping the vehicle for an expired registration, officers searched the car after noticing an open bottle of an alcoholic beverage in the center console and brass knuckles in Hayhurst’s lap, police said.

Police found the drugs in Hayhurst’s blue backpack and a locked silver box, which also contained a wallet bearing the name Heisenberg on it with a caricature of Walter White from AMC’s crime drama Breaking Bad, according to the report.

Hayhurst was additionally charged with seven offenses: manufacture and delivery of methamphetamine, which is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison; possession of marijuana; possession of a prohibited weapon; unlawfully carrying a weapon; and three counts of possession of a dangerous drug, which are Class A misdemeanors punishable by up to one year in jail.

The trio told police they had purchased the ingredients on a website and mixed them to create “Cloud,” believing it to be a safer and “legal alternative to ‘Molly’ since the ingredients had been legal to purchase,” read the probable cause affidavit for their arrest.

Sgt. Mike Dean said the drug was neither safe nor legal, pointing out the dangers of mixing drugs.

“With information off the Internet, you never know what’s true and what’s not, and you never know the purity of the chemical you’re getting versus the chemical that’s used,” Dean said. “You’re taking your chances.”
