Four charged after 1.5 lbs. of meth found during traffic stop

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas – Four Louisiana residents were arrested in Nacogdoches early Tuesday morning on felony drug charges.
At 4:42 a.m., Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office deputies patrolling in the 3400 block of South Street performed a traffic stop on a 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander traveling 62 mph in a 45-mph construction area. The vehicle was driven by Nikita Webber, 34, of Shreveport, with David Wayne Jefferson Jr., 39, Robinesha Lashaye Norris, 31, and Dodis Velour Cooper, 30, all of Bossier City, as passengers. Deputies detected the odor of marijuana while interviewing the occupants, and received conflicting details of the group’s trip from Houston to Shreveport, at which point a search of the vehicle was begun. It didn’t take long for deputies to discover a plastic grocery bag concealed in a t-shirt in the front passenger-side seat which contained a large amount of a crystal-like substance that tested positive as methamphetamine. The package weighed in at 1.56 lbs. Inside the center console deputies found a
loaded 9mm handgun. All four occupants were taken into custody and transported to the Nacogdoches County jail, where each was charged with a first-degree felony for possession of a controlled substance. Webber faces an additional charge for the unlawful carrying of a weapon, which is a Class-A misdemeanor. As of Wednesday afternoon, Webber and Cooper had posted bond and were released. Jefferson and
Norris remain incarcerated on $30,000 bonds.
