A Minden man was arrested after reported synthetic marijuana was found in his vehicle.

Devryocky Fisher, 20, of the 400 block of Clerk Street, was arrested Friday, May 15, and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says officers were outside walking across the parking lot at the LDWF building advising individuals there they had to leave.

“At that point in time, they noticed a vehicle with four individuals, and they approached these four individuals and told them they either had to go inside or leave,” Cropper said. “Once they were at the window of the vehicle, officers observed a Swisher Sweets cigar, which is commonly used for smoking illegal narcotics, and loose tobacco in the vehicle.”

When the officers asked all four occupants to exit the vehicle, they made contact with Fisher, Cropper says. When asked if he had any weapons on him, Fisher stated, “No,” Cropper said.

“While conducting a frisk of Fisher’s outer clothing, he gave permission to remove items from his outer pockets,” Cropper said. “Upon doing so, three Swisher Sweets were found in his pocket along with suspected synthetic marijuana in the back left pocket.”

He was placed under arrest for the above charges, and once Fisher was transported to the police station, a warrant check revealed an outstanding warrant for a hit and run.

He was booked and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
