Spat ends in drug bust

Minden Police officers responding to what they thought was a domestic call ended up arresting a Minden woman on drug charges Tuesday.

Robbie Coker, 52, of Rosehill Apartments has been charged with felony possession of CDS Sch. I (marijuana) and CDS Sch. II (morphine).

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said around 7:20 p.m., officers 1st class Danny Turner and James Barnes answered a call in reference to a disturbance between a male and female.

"The officers went to the reported apartment and heard voices inside," Cropper said. "They knocked twice before getting a response from the woman (Coker)."

Coker told officers she had been in an argument with her husband, but that he was no longer at the apartment. Coker reportedly let the officers in the apartment to check and make sure her husband was gone.

"She agreed and allowed them inside the apartment," Cropper said. "As they were proceeding down the hallway, Coker jumped in front of the officers to try and block them. Then she turned and ran down the hallway and into the bathroom."

Since officers didn't know what or who was in the bathroom, they reportedly pursued her into the bathroom.

"Inside the bathroom, in plain sight, they observed four spoons with an orange-colored substance in two of the spoons," Cropper said. "They asked Coker what the orange substance in the spoon was. She indicated it was melted down morphine."

Cropper said the officers discovered marijuana in the bathroom, as well as several syringes with liquid inside. There were also smoking pipes and rolling papers near a couch in the apartment.

"Coker was placed under arrest and advised of her rights," said the chief. "She indicated that the illegal narcotics were not hers – that they were her husband's, but she eventually told the officers they did belong to her."

Cropper said officers were unable to locate the husband.
