Traffic stop leads to arrest

A Lincoln Parish deputy pulled over a car during the early morning hours of June 10 and ended up arresting the driver.

The vehicle was traveling south on LA 33 without headlights on, though it was nearly 3 a.m. When the deputy talked with the driver, Vincent Brown Jr., 30, of Jena, it was determined that Brown’s driver’s license was suspended and he did not have insurance. 

Dispatch also informed the deputy that Brown had two bench warrants for domestic abuse battery and damage to property and had absconded probation.

The deputy also noticed two juveniles who were not in child restraints but who were sleeping as they were laying across the bench seats of the vehicle. 

The deputy also smelled marijuana and found suspected marijuana residue and a prescription bottle of Hydrochloride belonging to an individual in Arkansas.

Brown was booked in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a legend drug, the Hydrochloride.
