San Marcos Police officers arrested two suspects in the early morning hours of March 6 when they were found in a reported stolen vehicle parked at the Raceway on Highway 80 at approximately 2:14 a.m.

“Officers approached the vehicle and found two occupants inside,” San Marcos Interim Police Chief Bob Klett said. “Both were detained while officers searched the vehicle.”

SMPD recovered a loaded handgun, various ammunition, and significant amounts of promethazine/codeine and marijuana from inside the vehicle.

Klett said officers arrested Wayland James Hurst (DOB 04/11/98) and Rodjohon Deanmar Dorsey (DOB 09/24/97). Both suspects were booked into the Hays County Jail.

Hurst was charged with Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance, Unlawful Carrying a Weapon, and Possession of Marijunana, 4oz. to 5 lbs. He was released on surety and personal recognizance bonds on March 7.

Dorsey was charged with Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle and Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance. He was released on surety bonds on March 8.

SMPD will not be conducting media interviews on this case, as it is an active investigation.
