Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Casey Keith, 25 of Campti, on felony drug charges during a traffic stop March 9 at 9:04 pm in the Fairview Alpha community.
Patrol Division deputies stopped a 1995 GMC Jimmy on the Davis Springs Road for a traffic violation. While interviewing Keith, he appeared very uneasy leading them to believe criminal activity existed. During a search of the vehicle, deputies discovered approximately ½ gram of suspected methamphetamine, a syringe containing a clear liquid substance suspected to be methamphetamine, several baggies containing suspected methamphetamine residue, suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Keith was placed under arrest, transported and booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center. He was charged with Possession of CDS I Marijuana, Possession of CDS Schedule II Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and several traffic violations.
Keith remains in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center awaiting bond.
The vehicle was impounded by a local wrecker service.
The seized narcotics will be submitted to the crime lab for narcotics identification and analysis.
Deputies assigned to Patrol Shift “A” made the arrest.
