Two occupants of a vehicle were arrested on felony charges following a traffic stop Friday.
Allyson E. Jackson, 18, of the 100 block of Oak Tree Lane in Minden, was arrested for possession of Schedule I CDS (synthetic cannabinoids), possession of Schedule II methamphetamine with intent to distribute and a warrant for accessory after the fact for domestic abuse battery. She was also arrested as a fugitive from the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Tracy Leo Robinson, 55, of the same address, was arrested for fourth offense possession of marijuana.
Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says on Friday, Jan. 8, at approximately 4 p.m., Captains Dan Weaver and Marvin Garrett observed a vehicle on East Union with a passenger inside identified as Jackson.
“Both captains were aware there were felony warrants out for her arrest,” he said. “So, they conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle.”
The driver of the vehicle was identified as Robinson, the chief said. Once the traffic stop was made, Jackson was immediately placed under arrest on the outstanding warrant. During a search of her person, a small amount of suspected synthetic marijuana was found, he said, and she told Garrett she had methamphetamine on her person as well.
“At that point in time, Robinson was asked if there was anything illegal inside the vehicle and he replied that he didn’t think so,” Cropper said. “They asked for permission to search the car and he refused consent.”
Captain Robert Hayden, with the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, with his K-9 partner, Chesapeake Cyndi, were called to the scene, at which time she alerted on both the driver’s and passenger sides of the vehicle, according to the police report.
A search of the vehicle revealed two pill bottles wrapped in duct tape with two baggies, Cropper said. Also located inside the vehicle was a cigarette pack containing a loose leafy green substance suspected to be marijuana as well as a syringe.
Robinson was placed under arrest, and he and Jackson were transported to police headquarters for booking on the above charges before being transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
