A search of the vehicle revealed a quantity of marijuana, a digital scale, clear baggies which are commonly used to distribute illegal drugs, an open bottle of alcohol and a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol which was fully loaded. A further search of the driver’s purse revealed a quantity of illegal pills.
The driver, Kelsey Morgan Lewis, age 23 and a resident of Avenue E in Bogalusa, was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute illegal drugs, possession of illegal drugs, possession of controlled dangerous substances with a weapon present and having an open container in her vehicle. She remains in jail with her bond set at $30,000.
“Another example of an alert patrol deputy,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “When our officers stop someone for speeding, they never know what the outcome will be. Thanks, Deputy Taylor, for a job well done.”
