A Homer woman was arrested by Minden Police Friday during a traffic stop.

Mikalah Brooks, 22, is charged with resisting an officer with false information, a bench warrant and a fugitive warrant from Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office.

According to Police Chief Steve Cropper, Ofc. Jason Smith and Off. Kayla Little stopped Brooks’ red Honda Accord for not using a turn signal at the intersection of BF Martin and Hwy. 80.

“Brooks was not driving the vehicle, but the driver said the vehicle belonged to Brooks, who was a passenger,” Cropper said. “When the officers asked for the required documents, Brooks produced a title which was not dated or notarized.”

When asked for her name, Brooks reportedly gave officers Tiesha as a first name and said she did not have a driver’s license.

“Both females were ordered to exit the vehicle in order to investigate the situation further,” Cropper said. “Brooks gave consent to search herself and possessions, and officers discovered an identification card with the name Mikalah Brooks. “

Dispatch advised officers that Brooks has active warrants from Minden as well as a fugitive warrant with no bond.

She was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
