Woman arrested on traffic stop

A Simsboro woman was arrested Thursday after drugs were found in her vehicle during a traffic stop.

A Lincoln Parish Deputy saw a white Toyota Tacoma cross the centerline into the opposing lane on U.S. 80 shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday.

The driver was asked multiple times for her driver’s license and other documents, while the front seat passenger, Jay Ferguson, became verbally argumentative, contesting the stop.

The driver, Rachel Danielle Pee, 33, was found to have a suspended license. During subsequent investigation, drugs and related paraphernalia were found in the vehicle, including a digital scale with suspected methamphetamine residue, an Ecstasy tablet, a bag containing various drug paraphernalia and suspected crack cocaine and an open bottle of vodka. 

Ferguson was issued a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia and released.

Pee was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of a Schedule I controlled substance (MDMA “Ecstasy), possession of a Schedule II controlled substance (cocaine), possession of drug paraphernalia, open container, driving under suspension, and improper lane usage.

Bail was set at $5,750 but a hold was also placed by the Probation & Parole Office of the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
