I-10 Stop Yields 36 Pound Cocaine Bust
Louisiana State Police Troopers pulled over a car being driven on I-10 by Jaycie Thomas of Forest, Louisiana and brought in a huge drug haul. After stopping Thomas troopers found out his license had been suspended so a tow-truck was called to haul his vehicle away. An inventory of the vehicle was done and troopers found a weapon and 36 pounds of cocaine. Thomas was booked into the St. Martin Parish Jail and charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled substance, driving under suspension and failure to obey traffic signs.
