Remorse for Morse

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested a local woman recently on multiple drug charges.

Winter Nicole Morse, 34, of the 400 block of Whitlock St., Minden, is charged with possession of natural marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of Clonazepam and 2 counts of possession of CDS in the presence of a minor.

Sheriff Jason Parker said deputies Jacob Winiarski and Josh McCormick stopped a vehicle in which Morse was a passenger at around 1 a.m. Thursday, May 26.

“They pulled over the vehicle with a broken license plate light at the corner of Pine and Camp streets,” Parker said.  “There were several people in the vehicle, and as deputies had them all exit the vehicle, they smelled something that resembled natural marijuana.”

Parker said when Morse exited the vehicle, there was a small white pill on the seat.

“While checking Morse for weapons, another small white pill was dropped in the road,” Parker said. “In continuing to search the vehicle, deputies found a pill bottle containing suspected methamphetamine and two small baggies containing the natural marijuana.”

Morse reportedly told deputies she had another baggie of natural marijuana in her clothing.
