Union Parish Traffic Stops Lead to Drug Arrests

Two traffic stops by Union Parish sheriff’s deputies over the weekend resulted in drug-related charges being filed.

UNION PARISH -- Two traffic stops by Union Parish sheriff’s deputies over the weekend resulted in drug-related charges being filed.
 
Bobby G. Griffin Jr., 36, 103 Talton Drive, Farmerville, was arrested early Monday morning. He was booked into the parish detention center for third offense possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, obstruction of justice, speeding 70 in a 55 mph zone, and expired driver’s license.
 
Bond had not been set Monday.
 
After the stop, deputies reported that Griffin acted very nervous and was talking fast. He denied a request to have his vehicle searched so a K-9 unit was called to the scene. An open air search around the vehicle by the dog resulted in a positive alert.
 
Griffin was then asked to step out of the vehicle and two deputies noticed that the suspect threw something into the grass. A short time later, a bag containing 26 grams of marijuana was found.
 
Another traffic stop early Sunday morning also resulted in Roderick Dewayne Ross, 34, of 2148 Marion Hwy., Marion, being booked for third offense possession of marijuana and obstruction of justice. His bond was set at $8,500.
 
After the stop, one of two deputies at the scene found a small bag of marijuana on the passenger’s side of the auto. Ross denied the marijuana but the arresting deputy reviewed his in-dash camera that showed the suspect throwing the bag out of the window. Ross was a passenger in the car.
