NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - A traffic stop on Interstate 49 north of Natchitoches Saturday morning by NPSO Criminal Patrol Unit deputies has led to the arrest of a Natchitoches man on felony drug charges, according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones, Jr.

On March 1, 2014 at approximately 7:15am, deputies were working on Interstate 49 near milepost #144  when they stopped a 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck for a traffic violation.

During the traffic stop, deputies reported they suspected criminal activity.

NPSO said deputies obtained permission to search the driver and vehicle, seized suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and a Ruger .22 caliber semi-automatic assault style rifle.

Robert Terrell Martin, 54 of Natchitoches, was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with Possession of CDS Schedule II Methamphetamine, Illegal Possession of a Firearm during a Narcotics Offense, and Probation Violation.

Martin is on probation due to a prior felony burglary conviction until May 2014.

The vehicle was impounded by a local wrecker service.
