A Minden motorist's baubles hanging from a vehicle's rear view mirror caught the attention of a local police officer who turned the traffic stop into an illegal narcotics arrest.
Officer Ben Gray reportedly stopped a vehicle driven by 26-year-old Taylor Agee when he noticed the vehicle was being driven recklessly and noticed a large number of items hanging from the rear view mirror which appeared to be obstructing the driver's view.
"When the driver appeared to be very nervous, Officer Gray asked headquarters if there were any outstanding warrants," chief of police Steve Cropper said. "He learned Ms. Agee had several previous arrests for narcotics, so he decided to call for our K-9."
Cropper said police K-9 Harley and his partner, Off. Clint Smith, were called to the scene where Harley "alerted" to the presence of illegal narcotics both on and inside the vehicle.
"When officers searched the vehicle they found two pills identified as Xanax and Meloxican, plus one unidentified pill," Cropper said.
Agee was booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center and charged with possession of CDS Sch. II (Xanax, Meloxican) and possession of CDS Sch. I (Legend Drug), and obstructed windshield, Cropper said.
