St. Mary Agents Arrest Woman On Multiple Charges
Narcotics agents decided to pull over a woman who was not driving in just one lane. A twenty-six year-old woman from Bayou Vista was arrested early this morning after a traffic stop. St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputies report that Jamie Williams was arrested on a variety of drug and other charges.
Agents with the narcotics division were patrolling the Bayou Vista area this morning when they say they saw a car on highway 90 cross the center line multiple times. When deputies pulled over Williams, they say she had a small child in the car with her. When they started investigating, they say they found marijuana in the center console of her vehicle.

- violation of CDS Law (Drug Free Zone)
- improper lane use
