NPSO-Casey Davis 2017

A Red River Parish woman on probation was arrested on felony drug charges by Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies during a traffic stop near Campti June 23 according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.

NPSO Patrol Division stopped a 2009 Dodge pickup truck Friday afternoon on US-71 north of Campti for a traffic violation. They observed suspicious movement in the vehicle.

Deputies learned during a criminal background check, that the driver (identified as Casey L. Davis, 35 of the 700 block of US-71 in Coushatta) was on felony probation due to a prior felony narcotics conviction. Davis appeared uneasy, and with the prior suspicious movements in the vehicle deputies believed criminal activity existed.

During a search of the vehicle, deputies seized a small bag containing suspected methamphetamine, thirteen suspected alprazolam narcotic pills, syringes, and drug paraphernalia.

Deputies arrested Davis and transported her to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center for booking. A female correctional officer conducted a search of Davis’ person, discovering a bag containing suspected methamphetamine concealed in her under garments.

Davis was charged with Possession of CDS Schedule II Methampetamine-2nd Offense, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Introduction of Contraband into a Penal Institution and Probation Violation. She awaits bond to be set, however, she also has a probation hold.

The seized narcotics will be submitted to the crime lab for analysis. Deputies say approximately 3-grams of suspected methamphetamine was seized. The vehicle was towed by a local wrecker service. Deputies say while interviewing Davis, she confessed to ownership of the seized narcotics. Involved in the arrest were: Deputies J. Augustus and S. Axsom assisted by Detective C. LaCour.
