NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a Provencal woman and her sister-in-law on felony drug charges according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr.

On Thursday afternoon at approximately 1:30pm, NPSO Criminal Patrol Units were working on La. Hwy 494 near La. Hwy 484 in the Cypress area, when they stopped a 1999 Mazda Protégé for Speeding 74 miles per hour in a posted 55 mph speed zone, according to NPSO.

During the traffic stop, deputies observed suspicious activity in the vehicle which led them to believe that "criminal activity" existed, said NPSO officers.

Deputies obtained permission to search the vehicle and occupants, seizing  several suspected hydrocodone and alprazolam pills.

Deputies also noticed a 3 month old infant in the vehicle.

Deputies arrested Tyra Channel Danos,39, of Natchitoches, after she attempted to hide or destroy evidence during the traffic stop and Speeding 74/55, said NPSO.

Danos was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center and charged with 1-count of Criminal Obstruction of Justice.

NPSO reported also arresting Tammie Simmons Brian, 30, of Provencal, when she allegedly attempted to hide evidence in the rear of a Sheriff's patrol unit, and entered the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center with narcotics evidence on her person.  

The suspected narcotics was discovered on Brian while being searched by a detention center female corrections officer.

Brian was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with 1-count of Illegal Possession of CDS Schedule III Hydrocodone, 1-count of Illegal Possession of CDS Schedule IV Alprazolam, 1-count of Criminal Obstruction of Justice, 1-count of Introduction of a CDS Schedule IV Narcotic into a Penal Institution with Intent to Distribute, and 1-count of Illegal Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance in the Presence of a Person under the age of 17.

Deputies said Brian did not have a doctor's prescription for the seized narcotics, and she allegedly purchased the illegal narcotics in the Natchitoches area.

Danos, remains in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center awaiting bond.

Brian, currently out on bail on other criminal charges during January 2014, also remains in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center awaiting bond.
