PATROL DEPUTY APPREHENDS SPEEDER AND CONFISCATES MARIJUANA

 PATROL DEPUTY APPREHENDS SPEEDER AND CONFISCATES MARIJUANA 

Late in the night of May 25, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputy Justin Blackwell was patrolling on Highway 21 south of Bogalusa when he encountered a vehicle traveling north at a high rate of speed.  He intercepted and stopped the vehicle near the Bogalusa city limits, at which time he detected a strong odor of marijuana from inside the vehicle and observed what appeared to be marijuana inside the vehicle. 

A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a brown paper bag containing marijuana and a search of the driver revealed additional packaged marijuana in his pocket.  Digital scales and a marijuana grinder were later discovered inside the vehicle. 

The driver, Jewell Plummer, 42, a resident of Hickory Avenue in Bogalusa, was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail.  He was booked into the jail charged with speeding, possession with intent to distribute Schedule 1 drugs, and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.  Bond was set at $10,000.  Plummer met the conditions of his bond and was released on May 26.

 “Driving 75 in a posted 55 mph zone is never good,” said Sheriff Randy Seal.  “Deputy Blackwell did a great job in stopping the driver and then discovering drugs and drug paraphernalia.  The almost fourteen grams of marijuana were likely headed for the streets of Bogalusa.  Thanks, Deputy Blackwell, for taking those drugs out of our community.”
