A traffic stop last week turned into a drug bust when Minden patrol officers allegedly discovered illegal narcotics in the vehicle driven by a couple.
Chief of Police Steve Cropper said 32-year-old Felisa Renee Walker was booked for possession of CDS Sch. IV (Clonazepam) after she admitted ownership of three pills found in the back seat of the vehicle she reportedly was driving. Walker is also charged with improper lane usage and flight from an officer.
Kevin Neal Sykes, 29, has been charged with possession of CDS Sch. II (methamphetamine) with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia, Cropper said.
“During a search of Mr. Sykes by Officers Clint Smith and Jesse Cutrer, a silver cigarette case fell from inside his pants leg,” Cropper said. “Inside the case, officers found 2.14 grams of methamphetamine packaged into 10 small pink baggies.”
Officers found a black box hidden on Walker’s person which contained several pieces of a smoking pipe used for illegal narcotics, Cropper said. A black bag containing several pink baggies, a glass smoking pipe and a digital scale was found in the back seat of the vehicle, the chief said.
