Drugs found in illegally parked car

City of Grambling Police arrested a Shreveport man Sunday after drugs were allegedly found in his vehicle.

Terell D. Myles, 24, was found parked in a handicapped zone at the Dollar General store in Grambling by a patrol officer. When the officer asked for Myles’s identification, a strong odor of marijuana was detected coming from the car.

When Myles opened his door, an empty plastic baggie was seen. During a search suspected psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana were found on Myles and a bottle of prescription cough syrup was found under the car.

The name of the patient had been removed from the cough syrup, but Myles claimed it was his and that it fell out of the vehicle when he opened the passenger door.

Myles was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of a Schedule I controlled substance with intent to distribute (psilocybin mushrooms), possession of marijuana, possession of a Schedule V controlled substance (cough syrup), and parking in a handicap zone.
