A Minden man who had five outstanding warrants now has additional problems following his arrest last week when he was pulled over by Minden police detectives.

Marlon D. Sanders, 34, who lists a Penal Farm Road address, is currently being held in Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. Sanders was recognized by captains Daniel Weaver and Marvin Garrett as he was driving on Lee Street just before noon Thursday, Minden Chief of Police Steve Cropper said.

“Sanders was brought to headquarters where we conducted a thorough search. Officers found a portion of a baggie that contained what the suspect told us was powder cocaine,” Cropper said. “In addition to the five bench warrants we had, the sheriff’s office had an outstanding warrant on him also.”

Cropper says Sanders is being held on bench warrants through city court, including a bench warrant for possession of marijuana, a bench warrant for improper lane usage, three counts of no driver’s license and as a fugitive from Webster

Parish. Sanders is also being held for possession of CDS Sch. II (cocaine).
