Minden Police officers, patrolling in the area of Shreveport Road and W. Roosevelt Friday afternoon, initiated a traffic stop that netted a resident on multiple drug and firearm charges.
Undrevion Brown, 24, of the 100 block of W. Roosevelt, was arrested for failure to yield, possession of natural Marijuana with intent to distribute, felon in possession of a firearm, illegal carrying of a firearm in presence of controlled dangerous substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police Chief Steve Cropper said Off. Kendale Booker observed Brown in a four-door green Mercury making a left turn without yielding the right of way, almost causing a traffic accident.
“During the traffic stop, Brown advised Booker that he had a gun inside the car’s glove compartment,” Cropper said. “He later admitted to having a jar of Marijuana under the driver’s seat of the vehicle.”
During a pat-down for officer safety, Brown voluntarily removed contents from his pocket, which reportedly included a digital scale.
“Post Miranda, kjBrown admitted the gun in his possession belonged to him, as well as the Marijuana,” said the chief. “It was later determined that Brown is a convicted felon and should not be in possession of a firearm. He was found guilty in 2019 for illegal carrying of a weapon.”
Cropper said Off. Reece Tewell aided in the arrest.
The volume of Marijuana was determined to weight around 27 grams. Brown was transported to Minden PD for booking and later transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
