Police in Morgan City made a routine traffic stop when they noticed something unusual.  Police say that the driver, Justin Patterson, was holding a bag of marijuana on his lap. After a search of the car, they found more pot along with a bottle of  liquid codeine.

This lead to a search of Patterson's home, where even more was found. Enough, police say, to distribute.  He was booked into the parish jail  and no bond has been set.
