A traffic infraction led to the arrest of a Cotton Valley woman who reportedly had a small amount of methamphetamine in her purse.
Minden Police Capt. Julie Harmon says the traffic stop was conducted Sunday at the intersection of Homer Road and Highway 531 for proper equipment required.
“She was acting nervously, and she advised that she had meth inside a coin purse,” she said.
The coin purse was inside her purse, which was inside the truck, Harmon said. Officers located clear, plastic baggies containing a small amount of suspected methamphetamine.
Police arrested Barbara Cheatham, 38, of the 300 block of Walker Lane in Cotton Valley for possession of Schedule II CDS (methamphetamine) and cited for proper equipment required.
She was transported to police headquarters and then transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
