Woman arrested for drugs, warrants

Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman on numerous warrants and drug possession after she was stopped for speeding Friday morning.

Alyssa F. Carter, 25, of Keithville, was stopped on Interstate 20 about 7:30 a.m. for speeding 87 miles per hour in a 70 mph zone. A records check showed Carter was wanted by Ruston Police on warrants for simple criminal damage to property and two counts of simple battery. Third Judicial District Court also held a warrant for Carter for failure to appear on a possession of marijuana with intent to distribute charge.

When Carter was removed from the vehicle and arrested, the deputy smelled the odor of suspected marijuana coming from the car. A search located two bags of suspected MDMA (ecstasy) tablets, one containing 10 pills and one containing approximately 20 pills.

Carter was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for speeding, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance with intent to distribute, and the four warrants.

Carter’s bail amount was unavailable at press time.
