According to a LSP report, Louisiana State Police officers arrested four Louisiana men after a routine traffic stop Thursday morning, July 6 after finding 15,000 dosage units of Xanax and nine pounds of high grade marijuana on I-10 in West Baton Rouge Parish.

The arrests were made shortly after 3 a.m. Thursday when Troopers from LSP Troop A were patrolling I-10 eastbound east of LA 415 and observed a 2005 Ford Explorer commit a traffic violation and conducted a traffic stop.

During the stop, Troopers “became suspicious of criminal activity”, the report said.  Troopers were given consent to search the vehicle and found the units of Xanax and nine pounds of marijuana.

The following vehicle occupants were arrested and booked into the West Baton Rouge Parish Jail:

Jacob Guidry, 20 of Independence, was arrested for improper lane usage, possession with intent to distribute schedule I drugs (marijuana), and possession with intent to distribute schedule IV drugs (Xanax).

Chord Addison, 26 of Denham Springs, Allen Bennett, 22 of Independence, and Kevndrae Roberts, 26 of Independence, were each charged with possession with intent to distribute schedule I drugs (marijuana), and possession with intent to distribute schedule IV drugs (Xanax).

The report states that “Troopers will continue to provide the citizens of Louisiana a safer community through proactive drug related enforcement and cooperative efforts with local and federal law enforcement agencies. The public plays an important role in identifying possible suspects in crimes such as these, and are strongly urged to report criminal or suspicious activity.”
