Wanted man arrested on vehicle stop

A Farmerville man was arrested early Friday morning after he was stopped for an equipment violation and marijuana and methamphetamine were found in his vehicle.

Decorza A. Haulcey, 40, was stopped by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office about 1 a.m. Friday morning on La. Highway 33. When the deputy approached the vehicle, he saw suspected marijuana on the center console.

A records check showed Haulcey was wanted on bench warrants from Ruston City Court for speeding and theft, and two bench warrants from the 26th Judicial District Court for possession of marijuana, speeding, driving under suspension, illegal window tint, and improper equipment. Haulcey’s vehicle was uninsured, and his driver’s license was under suspension.

A search of the vehicle was conducted and suspected marijuana and a glass smoking pipe containing suspected methamphetamine were recovered.

Haulcey was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, improper lights, no insurance, driving under suspension, and the failure to appear warrants.

Bail on the local charges was set at $18,000.
