Two men were arrested in Bastrop Wednesday afternoon after police seized guns, drugs, and around $800 in currency from their truck, according to Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office.
Chief James Mardis said MPSO drug enforcement agents had been surveying Jared B. Willis, 26, and Joshua B. Reynolds, 25, for possible drug dealing operations, and then saw they failed to stop at a stop sign and pulled them over.
According to the affidavit, agents observed a blue four door Chevrolet truck make a right turn and fail to stop at the stop sign, and stopped the vehicle. The driver, Willis, would not unlock the door to the vehicle because he stated he had a gun in his waistband.
Agents also confirmed the driver, Willis, was under suspension after running his driver's license. Agents removed a Taurus 45 caliber handgun that was concealed in Willis' waistband and two glass smoking pipes from his pants pocket.
After searching the vehicle, 31 grams of meth was discovered, along with a vial of suspected Nandrolone Decanoate and one vial of suspected Testosterone. Further search revealed five rifles, one more handgun and a little over $800 cash.
Willis was arrested and charged with possession of schedule II (meth) with intent to distribute, possession of schedule III (Nandrolone Decanoate), possession of schedule III (Testosterone), possession of a firearm while in control of CDS, possession of drug paraphernalia and conspiracy to possess schedule II with intent to distribute.
Reynolds was arrested and charged with possession of schedule II (meth), possession of drug paraphernalia and conspiracy to possess schedule II with intent to distribute.
Both were transported to the Morehouse Parish Jail and booked with the above charges.
