Traffic stop yields drugs

A Choudrant woman was arrested last Wednesday for drug possession after she was stopped for traffic violations.

Jodi Lynn Brewer, 47, was stopped when a Lincoln Parish sheriff’s deputy saw her vehicle was not displaying a license plate.

According to the deputy’s report, Brewer exited the car rapidly and appeared to shield him from viewing the inside of the car. Brewer said her driver’s license was suspended, the vehicle was uninsured, and did not have valid registration or a license plate.

A search of the car yielded a small amount of alprazolam on the front seat. Alprazolam is a prescription medication sold under several brand names including Xanax. 

When asked if she had any contraband on her person, Brewer acknowledged she had items concealed in her undergarments.

Brewer was taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center where a female deputy retrieved a plastic baggie containing a small amount of methamphetamine and a glass smoking pipe typically used to consume narcotics.

Brewer was booked for possession of alprazolam, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
