So what are everyone's thoughts on the recent arrest of Christopher J. Cooper? Here is the article. Meth, gun, currency found following arrest
Thursday, June 28, DeQuincy Police Officer Darrell Marler pulled over a car to check its window tint and the stop resulted in the discovery of over 50 grams of methamphetamine and the arrest of the driver, Christopher J. Cooper, 32, of 1334 Mitchell Rd. on several counts.
Detective Tom Threet said that the department has caught some flack about stopping drivers to check tint. If they hadnt in this case, 50 grams of methamphetamine or ice-- called that because it comes from a more sophisticated lab than what authorities describe as a shake and bake operation -- would be in circulation in the DeQuincy area.
A lot of the time it comes out of Mexico, said Threet,and can sell for $140-$160 per gram. Usually its cut with a substance such as baby laxative.
Marler observed that Cooper showed physical signs that can be associated with drug use and there was a .22 rifle and extended magazine within reach of the driver. The officer patted Cooper down and he found a glass pipe which is commonly used to smoke meth.
When Cooper refused to let Marler search his vehicle, he contacted Phelps Correctionals Canine Unit and Lieutenant Lane Alexander and his dog, Bak responded.
(Threet said that officers who have reason to believe that drugs are in the vehicle have the option of calling for a search warrant or a certified, specialized canine officer.)
Officers located the meth,$730 in cash and plastic baggies. Cooper had an outstanding warrant on him from the Vernon Parish Sheriffs Office and was charged with illegal window tint, driving with a suspended license, no proof of insurance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of CDS II (meth) with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and illegal use of U.S. currency
