During a traffic stop on Tuesday police found and seized a significant amount of illegal drugs that led to the arrest of a local man.
At around 11 a.m. the Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office Investigator Trevor Wilhite made a traffic stop on the corner of Henry and Guice Street. The driver of the vehicle was Kamaria Holmes. He had four passengers traveling with him.
A search of the Pontiac rendered a Batman backpack in the back seat that contained digital scales, synthetic marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine. In a silver fanny pack there was more suspected synthetic marijuana discovered along with a silver .25 caliber pistol. Altogether police seized 108.3 grams of synthetic marijuana, 31.7 grams of meth, 3 grams of cocaine and an illegal weapon. Holmes took ownership of all of the drugs, but stated he did not know about the pistol.
Holmes, 34, was arrested and booked into the Morehouse Parish Jail. He was charged with possession of Schedule I (synthetic marijuana) with intent to distribute, possession of Schedule II (meth) with intent to distribute, possession of Schedule II (cocaine), possession of a firearm while in control of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
