Traffic stop leads to illegal firearms arrest of Winnfield man
NATCHITOCHES PARISH, La. (KSLA) - A Winnfield man is facing multiple charges following his arrest on December 1.
Jeremy Vines, 24, faces a traffic violation, possession of an illegal weapon and illegal carrying of a weapon.
On Tuesday, the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office received several complaints that a vehicle was speeding and running other vehicles off the road.
The vehicle was eventually pulled over near the intersection of South Drive and Woodard Drive by agents with the Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force.
“During the traffic stop investigation, Vines admitted that he was concealing a .22 caliber Derringer in his pocket, which was secured by Agents for safety. It was determined that Vines did not have a concealed carry permit for the weapon. As the investigation continued, Agents gained consent to search Vines’ vehicle. While searching Vines’ vehicle, Agents located a 20 gauge sawed-off shotgun, several boxes of shotgun, .223 caliber, .45 caliber, and 22 caliber ammunition.”
Vines was booked in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center. He has a future court date of February 18, 2021.
