Wanted man stopped for excessive window tint

A Homer man was arrested by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office Tuesday night after he was stopped for excessive window tint.

A deputy saw a silver Hyundai on La. Highway 33 with window tint that appeared to be too dark. The vehicle was stopped and the driver, Jermund C. Curry, 30, was found with bits of suspected marijuana stuck on the front of his shirt. Curry was removed from the vehicle and a search was conducted, yielding more marijuana, two digital scales typically used in narcotics trafficking, and a grinder used for processing marijuana.

A records check showed Curry was wanted on a Third District Court warrant for aggravated assault with a firearm.

A test of the window tint on the driver side front window showed it to be much darker than what is allowed by Louisiana law.

Curry was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal window tint, and the aggravated assault warrant.

Bail on the warrant was set at $50,000. Bail on the other charges was not available at the time of publication.
