A recent traffic stop on La. Hwy 6 West led to the arrests of siblings on felony drug charges. Deputies were patrolling on La. Hwy 6 West near I-49 Friday, Dec. 4 at 4:30 p.m. when they stopped a 2015 Chrysler 300 passenger car for a traffic violation.
Deputies identified the operator as Felecia LeBum, 42, of Houston, Texas. A passenger was identified as her brother, Shun T. LeBum, 38, of Shreveport.
Deputies say both individuals appeared nervous, leading them to believe criminal activity existed. Deputies say conflicting statements led them to ask Miss LeBum if there were any illegal items in the vehicle. She stated, “Some marijuana.”
Deputies learned through a National Crime Information Center Criminal History Background Check that Shun LeBum had been convicted of a prior felony.
A search of the vehicle led to the discovery and seizure of approximately 4-grams of suspected high grade marijuana, 4.5 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine, a Smith and Wesson 9mm semi-automatic handgun and a loaded Draco 7.62×39 AK-47 semi-automatic pistol and magazine on the backseat of the vehicle next to a 2-year old child.
Flecia D. LeBum, was issued misdemeanor citations for Simple Possession of CDS I Marijuana and Ilegal Possession of Narcotics in the Presence of Persons under the age of 17. She was issued a notice to appear in the Tenth Judicial District Court in February 2021.
Shun T. LeBum, was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with Possession of CDS Schedule II Methamphetamine, Illegal Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance in the Presence of Persons under the Age of 17, Illegal Possession of a Firearm by a Person Convicted of a Felony and Illegal Possession of Firearms During a Felony Narcotics Offense. He was released Dec. 8 on a $31,500 criminal bond set by a 10th Judicial District Court Judge.
The seized narcotics will be submitted to the Northwest Crime Lab for narcotics analysis pending judicial process.
Deputies say the two were traveling from Houston, making a stop in Many then on to Natchitoches. Deputy J. Creighton made the arrest assisted by Deputy M. Smith.
