Law enforcement in Rapides seized over 100 pounds of cocaine in a traffic stop.
According to the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office, deputies with the RADE Unit Highway Interdiction Team were on patrol on Hwy. 28 near Pineville on Wednesday. Around 2:30 p.m., they saw the driver of a semi-truck commit a traffic violation and conducted a traffic stop.
As deputies were conducting their investigation, they became suspicious of possible criminal activity. Deputies deployed canine “Izzy” to do a free air sniff of the tractor trailer and got a positive alert to possible narcotics. A thorough search of the tractor trailer revealed 35 kilos of powder cocaine. Total weight of the packages was a little over 108 pounds.
