Woman arrested with bags of marijuana

A Ruston woman was arrested early last Wednesday morning when marijuana was found in her car on a traffic stop.

Ladrena L. Robinson, 22, was stopped for improper tail lights on U. S. 80 near the Ruston west city limits about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday by a deputy of the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office. While talking with the driver, the deputy smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

A search was conducted, and three large vacuum sealed bags of suspected marijuana were found in a back seat backpack on the back seat.

Robinson was arrested and taken to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center where she was booked for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and improper tail lamps. Her bail amount was not immediately available.
