Three Louisiana residents never made it home Wednesday, because they tried to pass through Precinct 4 with illegal drugs. Around 3:30 p.m., a Montgomery County Precinct 4 Deputy Constable was  northbound on US 59 when he initiated a traffic stop on a 2013 Dodge Avenger near SH 242.  The car, which was occupied by a woman and two men, exited onto the service road and stopped.  The driver stepped out of the vehicle as instructed and approached the deputy. She acted very nervous, and it increased as they spoke, to the point of her trembling uncontrollably. She said the car was not hers, but belonged to the friend of her boyfriend. After talking with the driver, the deputy walked to the vehicle to speak with the two men, Marcus Davis and Marquice Edden. As he approached and asked for the vehicle’s insurance and their identification, the deputy smelled a strong odor of marijuana from inside the car. Both men said they did not have any form of identification with them. Additional patrol units responded to the scene and the deputy asked Williams, the driver, if there was marijuana inside the vehicle. She admitted there was, but said she didn’t know how much.  All three suspects were then detained. A search of the vehicle revealed a 9 mm pistol. There were also two white plastic bags, with one containing multiple freezer bags filled with marijuana and the other had a tightly compressed “brick” of marijuana. The combined weight of the marijuana was over 10 pounds. The deputy then discovered a small plastic sandwich bag containing six smaller yellow plastic bags with cocaine inside, having a combined weight of 2.3 grams. Another small plastic bag contained a red powdery substance that tested positive as MDMA, or Ecstasy (less than 1 gram). None of the trio claimed ownership of the drugs or the firearm. As a result, all three were charged in connection with the drugs and the two men were charged for being convicted felons in possession of a firearm.    Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden said it is no secret Highway 59 is a major corridor for drug trafficking, but he sees it as an opportunity for his agency to improve their skills while helping other communities in addition to their own.“These drugs may just be passing through East County on the freeway, but they’re headed for someone’s neighborhood and will end up in the hands of someone’s children if they aren’t stopped,” Constable Hayden said. “I’m happy knowing we’re making a difference, even if we never know where.” Marquice Desaun Edden, 28, of Shreveport, Louisiana is charged with second-degree felony Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance (Penalty Group 1) more than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams; third-degree felony Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by Felon; and third-degree felony Possession of Marijuana, more than 5 pounds, but less than 50 pounds.  Edden works as a cook. Marcus Dewayne Davis, 25, of Montgomery, Louisiana is also charged with second-degree felony Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance (Penalty Group 1) more than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams; third-degree felony Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by Felon; and third-degree felony Possession of Marijuana, more than 5 pounds, but less than 50 pounds. Davis works at a carwash. Lomonday Williams, 30, of Shreveport, Louisiana is charged with second-degree felony Manufacture / Delivery of a Controlled Substance (Penalty Group 1) more than 1 gram, but less than 4 grams; and third-degree felony Possession of Marijuana, more than 5 pounds, but less than 50 pounds. Williams is unemployed.
