Traffic stop leads to drug charges

A man was arrested Wednesday evening following a traffic stop by Grambling Police.

About 6:50 p.m., a Grambling police officer saw a Nissan Sentra swerving across the roadway and crossing the double yellow line on College Avenue. The driver, James L Caesar, Jr., 24, of Grambling, told the officer he had consumed “a couple of shots” earlier in the day.

Suspected marijuana was seen by police in plain view in the car. A search recovered a plastic bag of marijuana, a large jar of marijuana, numerous plastic baggies, and a digital scale.

Caesar was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and improper lane usage.
