A traffic stop on the day after Christmas proved not so jolly for a Webster Parish woman who now finds herself locked in the parish jail looking at drug related charges.
Jennifer Rosypal, 40, of the 300 block of Holomon Loop in Dubberly, has been charged with possession of CDS Sch. II (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia and obstruction of justice, Minden Chief of Police Steve Cropper said.
Rosypal reportedly was the passenger in a vehicle stopped just before 9:30 a.m. on Lewisville Road by Sgt. Ryan Barnette.
“Sgt. Barnette noticed both occupants of the vehicle were extremely anxious and nervous, so he asked them to exit the car,” Cropper said. “When Jennifer Rosypal stepped out of the vehicle, she dropped a small baggie containing methamphetamine residue.”
Cropper said a search of the passenger side of the vehicle by Barnette and Lt. Richard Cooper uncovered another baggie reportedly containing less than one gram of methamphetamine, an uncapped syringe containing suspected liquefied meth, an unused syringe and a spoon commonly used to consume illegal narcotics.
“Jennifer Rosypal apparently tried to conceal the syringe of meth before exiting the vehicle,” Cropper said. “Subsequently, she uncapped the needle and possibly expelled some of the liquid into the car.”
Cropper said the driver of the vehicle was Jennifer Rosypal’s daughter, Audrie. She has been charged with driving under suspension, no insurance and as a fugitive from the Minden Police Department.
Jennifer Rosypal is housed at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
