Traffic stop ends in drug arrest

A traffic stop led to the arrest of a Minden man when Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies discovered what appeared to be cocaine.


Kenneth Green, 50, of N. Talton Street, was arrested for possession of a Schedule II CDS (cocaine). According to the police report, Deputies Marshall Merritt and John Lewis Jr. initiated a traffic stop on W. Roosevelt for a traffic violation.

During a pat down for officer’s safety, deputies discovered a white powder substance on the ground partially underneath Green’s foot. Reports indicate the substance field-tested positive for cocaine.

Deputies placed him under arrest and Green later admitted to possession of the substance and threw it down.
