BELTON (January 4, 2013)--A Belton man pleaded guilty Friday in Waco's federal court to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

U.S. District Judge Walter S. Smith set Brady Ray Daggs for sentencing on Feb. 27.

An affidavit filed in federal magistrate's court showed Daggs was arrested after a confidential informant arranged a controlled drug buy at a convenience store in Belton.

The affidavit says on Oct. 4, 2012, the informant telephoned Daggs to arrange the purchase of 2 ounces of methamphetamine.

The informant was taken to the agreed spot in an unmarked police car and when he identified Daggs, Belton police officers surrounded his car and arrested him.

Another man who was in the car with Daggs got out and as he did, a Baggie of what police believed was methamphetamine fell out of his pants.

A subsequent search of Daggs' car revealed another Baggie of methamphetamine.

A field test confirmed the Baggies contained methamphetamine and both together weighed 2 ounces, the amount that had been ordered.
