Patrol deputies stopped a 2013 Ford pickup truck for a traffic violation.


Deputies said the operator identified himself as Timothy W. Keith of Coushatta.

An NLETS computer check revealed Keith’s driver’s license was suspended and he was wanted by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office for Issuing Worthless Checks and by the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office for Failure to Appear in Court.

An additional unit responded to assist.

Deputies observed a passenger in the vehicle, Charles Chase Nobles, 40, of Goldonna sweating profusely and acting extremely nervous.

While speaking with Nobles, deputies observed suspected drug paraphernalia in plain view in the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, deputies seized approximately 1-gram of suspected methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
