Campti man arrested on felony drug charges


A traffic stop Jan. 20 at 1:50 p.m. led to the arrest of Bryant Ray Pierce, 34, of the 100 block of Sherry Circle in Campti on felony drug charges, according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.

NPSO Patrol Division deputies were patrolling on LeBrum Street within the City Limits of Campti when they stopped a 2000 Dodge van for a traffic violation. Bryant was very uneasy and shaking. He also dropped a cigarette, then placed it backwards in his mouth.

Deputies suspected criminal activity.

Deputies obtained permission to search Bryant and the vehicle, which led to the seizure of two baggies containing suspected methamphetamine.

As a result, Bryant was placed under arrest and transported to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center, booked, and charged with Possession of CDS Schedulel II Methamphetamine.

Bryant remains in the Natchitoches Detention Center awaiting bond.

Deputy J. Augustus made the arrest.

NMJDTF agents also assisted in the investigation.
