Members of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Highway Enforcement Unit in Louisiana arrested a California man in possession of approximately two pounds of high-grade marijuana, hidden in cereal boxes, following a recent traffic stop on Interstate 12.
According to St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page, deputies initiated a traffic stop early Tuesday morning, after observing a rental car with a California license plate driving eastbound on Interstate 12 at a rate of 86 miles per hour. The driver, Donald Roots-Scott Jr., age 23, of Sacramento, admitted to deputies that his driver’s license was expired and that he had marijuana inside the vehicle.
A search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of approximately two pounds of marijuana. The weed was hidden inside two cereal boxes—Honey Nut Cheerios and Captain Crunch—which were sitting on the rear seat of the vehicle. Roots-Scott told deputies he was transporting the marijuana for distribution in nearby Mississippi.
Roots-Scott Jr. was charged with exceeding the maximum speed limit, having an expired driver’s license and possession with intent to distribute Schedule 1 hallucinogens.
These charges carry bail fees of $250, $250 and $10,000 respectively. He is currently being held in St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office’s jail, in Covington, Louisiana. He will go before Commissioner Foil on Friday, August 4, for his arraignment.
