Jason Bullock, 30, of Natchez, Mississippi, remained in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on Tuesday on charges of monetary instrument abuse, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
His bond was set at $75,000.
On Saturday afternoon a Ruston Police Department officer responded to Malone Polaris, located at 1716 Celebrity Drive, responded to a call about someone trying to make a purchase of a four-wheeler and lawn mower with a fraudulent check.
Bullock’s arrest affidavit says that upon arrival, the RPD officer was told Bullock was the male suspect and that the RPD officer then advised of his Miranda rights. Bullock, along with the driver of the vehicle that Bullock arrived at Malone Polaris in, were both transported to the Ruston Police Department.
The affidavit said that upon further inspection of the checks at the police station, they were determined to be fraudulent cashier’s checks.
A search warrant was then issued for a backpack Bullock said he was. Inside it deputies reported finding 2.9 grams of suspected meth along with a smoking device.
Bullock was then transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and booked on the three charges.
