Minden woman causes ruckus at grandmother’s house

By Bonnie Culverhouse

A Minden woman, previously banned from her grandmother’s residence has been arrested on multiple drug charges.

Mary Woodall, 29, of the 1100 block of Shreveport Rd., was arrested by Minden Police Saturday afternoon and charged with possession of Sch. II, possession of Sch. I, possession of drug paraphernalia and entry on or remaining after being forbidden.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said Ofc. Jason Smith and Off. Kayla Little responded to a Webb Court address belonging to Woodall’s grandmother the day after Woodall was verbally banned from the property.

“Woodall was wearing a towel, saying she had just gotten out of the bath, and her grandmother was near the garage, crying and telling Woodall to leave,” Cropper said. “Woodall was yelling about clothes belonging to her boyfriend who was no longer on scene. Apparently, the clothes had been thrown away.”

When officers approached, Woodall reportedly began yelling at them and lifted her arms, causing the towel to fall.

“Officers told Woodall to go inside the residence and put on some clothes,” said the chief. “She reluctantly did so while still yelling at the officers and her grandmother.”

After approximately 60 seconds passed, officers reportedly entered the residence, where Woodall stated she was dressed and gathering her belongings in a trash bag, per the officers’ request.

“Woodall asked if she was going to jail,” Cropper said. “Officers told her she was going to jail because she had been banned from the residence the day prior and returned to it.”

At this point, the chief said Lt. Spencer Tippen arrived on the scene and they arrested Woodall. Off. Little reportedly conducted a search and found no contraband on Woodall.

“When officers entered the residence and went into the bathroom, they discovered a cigarillo package that contained two cigarillos and four green plastic baggies containing suspected narcotics,” Cropper said. “Also next to the sink was a purple paper envelope with a black cat on it. Inside that envelope was a glass Methamphetamine pipe.”

Woodall reportedly admitted the narcotics and pipe were hers and her father gave her the Methamphetamine, claiming she had not used it.

She was booked and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
