Two men have been arrested for allegedly having synthetic marijuana in the presence of a minor.
Michael Shane Savage, 19, of the 100 block of Kerry Place, was arrested Sept. 23, and charged with possession of Schedule I CDS (synthetic marijuana) in the presence of a minor. Bond was set at $2,500.
Roy Orlandas Doyle, 22, of the 100 block of Holley Road in Dubberly, was arrested the same date and charged with possession of Schedule I CDS (synthetic marijuana) in the presence of a minor. Bond was set at $2,500.
Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies observed the two in the parking lot of Southern Inn Motel in Minden with a child inside the vehicle, according to reports. A large amount of smoke was observed coming from inside the vehicle, and the driver, identified as Savage, was seen holding a cigarette-type object.
Deputies approached the vehicle and made contact with Savage and his passenger, identified as Doyle. During a search of the vehicle, in plain view, suspected synthetic marijuana was seen inside.
Upon questioning, deputies say Doyle told them the mother of the child was inside the motel room. The child’s mother was allowed to come get the two-year-old, and Doyle and Savage were placed under arrest.
Arresting officers were sheriff’s narcotics agents Bobby Igo III and Joel Thomas as well as Maj. Dustin Reynolds, Lt. Scott Tucker and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries agent Wesley Duck.
Savage and Doyle were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking.
