A Lafayette woman is facing drug charges after a bust on I-10, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on Monday, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) Detective Sgt. Jeff Cole conducted a stop on a car traveling eastbound on I-10 between Vinton and Sulphur for a traffic violation.

Authorities said when Cole spoke with the driver, 31-year-old Emily T. Wallace, he detected a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from inside the car. 

"During a subsequent search of the car, Cole recovered a can with a screw-type false bottom, containing approximately two ounces of methamphetamine. He also recovered a small bag on her person containing approximately two ounces of methamphetamine and two partially burnt marijuana cigarettes, along with a spoon, and a syringe from inside the car," the release states.

Wallace was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with possession of CDS II (meth), possession of CDS I (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Her bond has been set at $205,100.
