Passenger in Traffic Stop Booked for Drugs and Outstanding Warrants

A routine traffic stop on Highway 438 near Black Jack Road produced an arrest for possession of
methamphetamine. On Wednesday (May 27, 2020), Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies Chad Cassard and Kyle Stogner were patrolling north of Franklinton when they observed a vehicle with no license plate. The driver was issued citations for driving with a suspended license and no proof of insurance.

The passenger, Calvin Arthur Finley, age 43 and a resident of Jenkins Road, was found to have a quantity of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in his possession. Additionally, Finley had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court. Finley was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where he was booked for possession of illegal drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to appear in court. On May 28, a Magistrate Judge set Finley’s bond at $4,000.

“When our officers stop someone for a traffic violation,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal, “they sometimes discover someone with outstanding warrants or in possession of illegal drugs. In this case, Deputies Cassard and Stogner were able to remove illegal narcotics from our community. Good job, men!”
