Stop leads to numerous charges

Two men were arrested Wednesday on numerous traffic and drug charges after a Lincoln Parish deputy stopped their truck.

At about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Cody L. Joyner, 26, was stopped while driving a vehicle without a license plate. Joyner told Deputy J. Marshall he was aware that he lacked a license plate on the truck and also stated his driver’s license was suspended.

The deputy determined the truck had no inspection sticker, was not insured, and was not registered. A record check showed Joyner was driving under suspension and the passenger, Robert D. Audirsch, 48, was wanted for two warrants for child support.

Audirsch was arrested on the warrants and handcuffed. When he was searched, a syringe was found in his front pants pocket. A small container of marijuana and a metal smoking pipe were found in the vehicle.

When Joyner was searched, a syringe containing suspected methamphetamine was found in his sock.

Both men were taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center and booked. Joyner was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, no insurance, no inspection sticker, failure to register a vehicle, no license plate, and driving under suspension. Bail was set at $12,500.

Audirsch was booked for two warrants for failure to pay child support, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bail was set at $6,000.
