Lisbon man found himself in handcuffs after law enforcement agents found suspected drugs in his vehicle.
Cory Todd Whitman, 56, of the 200 block of Whits End Road, was arrested Tuesday, Sept. 29, and charged with possession of Schedule II CDS (crystal methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was cited for improper lane usage. Bond was set at $5,600.
According to reports, Webster Parish Sheriff’s narcotics agents Joel C. Thomas and Bobby Igo III, along with Louisiana State Police trooper Phillip Krouse conducted a traffic stop on Dogwood Trail after observing a vehicle swerve into the oncoming lane of traffic.
When asked to exit the vehicle, deputies say Whitman appeared to be nervous. Igo asked him if he had any weapons, and Whitman told him he had a pocketknife. Whitman was then asked to empty his pockets, and inside was a needle deputies say he attempted to conceal.
Whitman was detained, and following a search of his person, suspected crystal methamphetamine was discovered in his front pants pocket.
At that time, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Capt. Robert Hayden and Depty Chuck Clark arrived on scene to assist.
Whitman was placed under arrest on the above charges and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking.
