Police arrest Sibley woman on active warrant, discover drugs

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Having active warrants put a Sibley woman in the Minden Police’s line of sight.

Erin K. Fowler, 40, of the 100 block of McDade, was arrested for possession of Sch. II Methamphetamine and an active warrant.

Chief Steve Cropper said Ofc. Reece Tewell was on patrol on Sibley Rd. when he noticed Fowler in her vehicle. He had knowledge of her active warrants.

“The officer conducted a traffic stop and asked Fowler to step out of the vehicle,” Cropper said. “He advised Fowler she had a warrant for theft through the police department, and asked if her son, who was a passenger in the vehicle, had a driver’s license.”

Fowler reportedly said he did not, so another family member was contacted to get it.

“Ofc. Tewell then asked Fowler if he could search the car, and she gave consent,” said the chief. “The officer located a Marlboro light cigarette package in the driver’s side door. Inside the package, he observed a crystal like ‘rock’ in the bottom.”

The substance reportedly tested positive for Methamphetamine 0.2g. Fowler was booked at MPD and later transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
