Traffic stop ends with meth arrest

Drugs reportedly found in suspect’s pants, in vehicle

A traffic stop lead to the arrest of a Shreveport man on multiple drug charges.

Jason Warner, 45, of the 800 block of River Road, was booked on charges of carless operation, driving while suspended, switched tags, six counts of possession of a schedule IV drug, 3 counts of possession of a schedule II drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, introducing contraband into jail and as a fugitive from Webster Parish.

Officer Jamie Forgey stopped Warner after he was reportedly seen weaving across lanes of traffic on Broadway.

During the stop, Warner told the officer the reason he was weaving across the lanes was because he was eating peanuts and driving with his knee, according to the arrest affidavit.

Warner was placed under arrest for driving under suspension. During an inventory of his vehicle, officers found multiple pills in a pouch, along with a smoking pipe, straw and lighter, the report said.

At police headquarters, officers reportedly found meth inside his pants.

After being booked, he was transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
