The Clark County Sheriff’s Office began their investigation when they conducted a search warrant on Friday morning. The investigators had to breach the door, according to the affidavit filed with the charges.

“When making entry into the residence with the assistance of the dog warden due to two aggressive dogs within the residence, investigators located manufacturing material for crack cocaine,” the affidavit says. “The materials included a pyrex dish, creatine, white rock-like substance (crack cocaine) clear baggies, razor blades and scales. Also located within the same room investigators located a loaded 9mm handgun with an extended magazine…”

The affidavit says deputies reported that Bryson admitted to trafficking crack cocaine to supply a female’s drug addiction.

“He also stated that if he was not going to be incarcerated that he was going back to North Carolina tonight,” the affidavit says.

It was this comment to investigators that prompted the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office to attend Bryson’s arraignment Friday morning where they requested his bond be set at $200,000. Clark County Municipal Court Judge Thomas Trempe set the bond at $100,000.
