Speeding car leads to firearms arrest

A traffic stop by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department Monday afternoon led to an arrest and seizure of some heavy weaponry.

Deputy D. Johnston was monitoring traffic on Interstate 20 when the deputy clocked a white Ford at 103 miles an hour in the 70 mph zone. During a subsequent investigation, three firearms were located in the car including a Glock pistol with an extended magazine, a .223 rifle, and a pistol with a drum magazine. All the weapons were loaded.

The Glock was under the seat of a passenger, Courtney Da Quan Milton, 22, of Shreveport, who was identified as a convicted felon. Two other two firearms were also within Milton’s reach.

Another passenger, Devoris Hardy, of Shreveport, was found to have a second-degree murder charge pending from the Dec. 6 shooting death of 24-year-old Jacoby Ware in Shreveport. 

Milton was arrested for possession of firearms by a convicted felon and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center. Bail was set at $20,000.

The driver was issued traffic citations.
