Traffic Stop Near Bush Results in Arrest of Convicted Felon with Drugs and a Firearm

Preston Carter, age 33 and of New Orleans, was arrested Friday (February 25, 2022) morning after drugs were found in his vehicle during a traffic stop near Bush.

A St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputy stopped a 2010 Cadillac SUV for speeding on Isabel Swamp Road near Nick Jenkins Road. The vehicle was headed northbound toward Washington Parish. The deputy detected the odor of marijuana and a subsequent search of the vehicle located 5 grams of marijuana, 31.4 grams of cocaine, 3.7 grams of crack cocaine and a 9mm handgun.

Carter was arrested and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail for Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Possession with Intent to Distribute Crack, Simple Possession of Marijuana, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possession of a Firearm in the Presence of Narcotics, Speeding and No Driver’s License.

“I commend this patrol deputy, whose alertness and training prompted him to detect the presence of narcotics during a traffic stop. His actions resulted in preventing these drugs from ending up on our streets,” Sheriff Randy Smith said.
